Moxie may not be coming back soon but hopefully the track that goes with the image below will be 
Alas, it is not yet sounding as I would like it to sound so in the meantime. . . . have you ever been searching for your spectacles to discover you have them on your head?

Moxie (n.)
''courage' 1930, from Moxie, brand name of a bitter, non- alcoholic drink, 1885, perhaps as far back as 1876 as the name of a patent medicine advertised to 'build up your nerve':; despite legendary origin stories put out by the company that made it, it is perhaps ultimately from a New England Indian word (it figures in river and lake names in Maine, where it is apparently from Abenaki and means 'dark water')
