From The Guardian newspaper 26 February 2013: Pope Benedict XVI will be known as "emeritus pope" in his retirement and will continue to wear a white cassock, the Vatican has announced, again fuelling concerns about potential conflicts arising from having both a reigning and a retired pope.

southcoastsounds commented on the word frowzy
My parents were from Lancashire UK, and frowsy (frowzy) meant that feeling you get when you wake up after a lunchtime nap - tired, muzzy, slightly vague, dishevelled. The sort of feeling you get when you need to get going and shake off the torpor!
