What does "heady" mean to you? To me it means something that goes to your head in a good way.
Intoxicating or stupefying: heady liqueur. [Intoxicating - no. Stupefying - maybe]
Tending to upset the mind or the balance of senses: standing on a heady outcrop of rock. [this works as an analogy, I guess]
Serving to exhilarate: the heady news of triumph. [If only.]
Impetuous and rash: a heady outburst of anger. [wrong]
Domineering; overbearing: too heady to reason with. [doesn't work]
Swift and violent; headlong: a heady current. [possibly]
Showing intelligence and good judgment; prudent: heady tactics. [no]
Suffering from a headache: a heady, throbbing feeling. [maybe this works, kinda]
Would you use "heady" in this example, or not?
