Fank

The Hungarian word for doughnut. Flour, yeast, milk, icing sugar, butter are all added together to make this delicacy. This is my weakness. I have a bakery near me that I frequent every morning for coffee. I can quickly run in, get a fresh cup of hazelnut coffee with cream and sugar, and a glazed doughnut to go. The routine makes my morning such a nice way to start the day. When the challenge today was to write in a different language, I immediately thought of what language I could try? I took Hungarian for a year before going to visit the country, but that was a very long time ago. “Fank” was one of the words I held onto. So that is why I am telling you about this now. It is a love of mine, a daily slice.

I've enjoyed writing since the first grade, since my aunt gave me a journal so long ago to write in. Now I write to enjoy the moments. I write to stretch and share my thoughts. I write to connect and find calm. Raising three kids, three rabbits and two cats, with a school social work career, I need the daily refuge writing offers. The simple reflections allow for an abundance of memories to the hurried pace of life.

  1. Cool! I didn’t know there was a word for donut in Hungarian! One of the places I’d love to go is Budapest! I’ll have to remember Fank if I ever get the chance. When I worked at a local land trust a few years ago, I’d stop at the local convenience store for my coffee. It was a great way to start the day! Enjoy!

  2. Well, “fank you” for the new word. Hahaha, when I saw your title this popped in my head, how kids will often say fank instead of thank! We traveled to Hungary a few years ago, what a wonderful trip. When I go back (notice I didn’t say if) I will try the fank, and thank you in my head for steering me in its direction!
