Cankles–do you have them?

Cankle is not a term I had heard before this summer. It came  up when some of my relatives were visiting  Colorado.   So, you aren’t left out—here is what a
cankle is.

CANKLE is the ankle of a person (usually fat) where there is  no clear distinction between the where the calf ends and the ankle starts.  Hence, the merging of the terms calf and  ankle.

I almost forgot about the family conversation until I saw  our neighbor’s baby.  At one year old,  she has a serious case of the cankles.
Hopefully, she will outgrow it but some adults seem to have a long-term
case of cankle.

Note: an alternative spelling is kankle.
