Can anyone give a HINT to the following?
The ______ of the task did not dampen Peter's ______ enthusiasm for deciphering obscure hieroglyphics?
I am looking for two words which are anagrams of each other to fill the gaps so that the sentence reads logically
I do have a couple of words which are anagrams of each other, but whilst one of the words fits the second gap, the other doesn't really fit the first gap,(and noting to do with hieroglyphics!) so think I am way off the mark. Closing date is tomorrow so this is my final attempt at solving! TIA
