of the Week
word or phrase to add to your army.
Avuncular (a-vunk-you-ler) sounds like a really serious word, but it has a fairly simple meaning. it describes . . . wait for it . . . being an uncle—kind, generous, friendly, playful. Santa Claus is an avuncular character. He loves children and would behave as a good uncle would.
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
