readily; willingly

Example sentence: “I would as lief go now as later.” This word appeared in a crossword puzzle today. I had never seen the word before, but my wife had. Of course.

    I remember seeing or hearing this somewhere as “I would as leave go now as later” (or something similar), but now know that it should have been “lief” (after consulting the dictionary you and Sara gave to Mom and me six years ago for Christmas). Where did you find such a knowledgeable wife, anyway? Could I meet her sometime?

    Ha ha! You’re a funny man. You’re welcome to meet her any time you want. I suspect she’ll look familiar to you.
