Frauntie and Fruncle
In my many travels, I have had the opportunity to meet wonderful aunties and uncles around the world. Some are blood relations, others are not. I recently came to the realization that, as I have aged, aunties and uncles have become more like friends (but still remain greatly revered and respected). To that end, borrowing from the Sprint 'framily' plan concept, I came up with the terms frauntie and fruncle. That is, aunties and uncles who are like dear friends but should still be referred to as auntie and uncle. I think it's pretty neat. So far, there have not been any protests ;-).
I am like a breeze -- you can find me...
