Volume 1, A-G, J.E.Lighter Editor

honeyfuggle: 1) to decieve or charm with flattery or promises.  As early as 1829.  Used throughout the period with many references.   I used this in The Wild Half, and probably will use it in other book as well.  “He had so much charm, he could honeyfuggle a snake.” 2) to ingratiate onself, often for a dishonest purpose 3) to enage in kissing, hugging, especially with a very young girl.
