Holly Golightly called it having the "mean reds," but when you're furious, sulking or bad-tempered—for a good reason or not—your ancient Midwestern relations are likely to observe that you are "in a faunch." The expression is said teasingly and indulgently—and it's worth reviving, because it recognizes that dark moods come to us all, and often shouldn't be taken too seriously. If you have a best friend who occasionally blows up at you over small things, take it in stride and tell yourself, "she's in a faunch" and know that it will pass.
