What a rough sounding word. The sound of it would make it a great fit for poetry or prose that was bitter, angry, or condescending of something non-permanent. "His fugacious affection," or "The politician's fugacious concern over..." I know the English language has its faults, but I think its abundance of synonims (sp?) is one of its strengths. You can generally find a word that not only has the definition required, but also has the inflection, sound, and mood required.

Yes, I was pleased with this word when it came today. I will try to use it several times, to get it into my vocabulary. "Fugacious friendships."
