One More For The Word Police

If your interest has been aroused by something, then it has been piqued, which means “to stimulate.”

Not “peeked,” which means to sneak a quick look at, nor even “peaked” which means pointed, or, if you make it two syllables, peak-ed,  is a colloquial term for looking a little sickly.

PIQUED.  Learn it, love it. USE it.

Thank you.  Carry on.
