You mean ***envious***! :-)
P. S. My wife once asked me to explain to her the difference between
``jealous'' and ``envious''. I said:
Suppose that you and [for present purposes] Steve were walking
down the street one day, engaged in conversation, and you happened
to look up and see, on the corner, myself and (let us say) Angelina
Jolie engaged in a hot, passionate embrace. You, my love, would be
jealous. Steve would be envious.
