(noun, plural "rocles", sounds like "focal")
When the patch of slightly longer hair in an uneven beard
or at the tip of a mustache
is absentmindedly twisted into a point or spike it becomes a rocle. Just as stroking one's own facial hair
, it is typically done either in an absent-minded fashion or as a nervous tic
, like the chewing of fingernails.
I can't concentrate on the book; I keep finding all these rocles in my beard.
See this rocle I just made that's sticking out? I think I need a trim.
My girlfriend loves to twist my rocles.
