and other "Sn" words
No, this not an article about Snuggle, the fabric softener. Though, I do love to use it when I wash our sheets and comforters. I love the white lavender and sandalwood scented one. (I hope my brothers don’t read this otherwise I’m going to hear some name calling)
Well, the Snuggle I’m talking about is the good one you want to do with your significant other. Everybody loves cuddling with that special loved one, don’t they? I know I love to snuggle or cuddle with Rose. Not to sound vain (because I am) I always thought I was a champion cuddler, a super snuggler but sad to say after watching TV shows and movies I’m just average.
In those shows or movies when a couple who are in love wake up there she is all comfortable in his arms. They wake up at the same time, both smiling not a hair out of place, no bed heads. *** stops typing for a second and throws some punches in the air pretending I landed two each to their jaws *** Rose and I may fall asleep cuddling but we never wake up in the same position. I don’t know about Rose but usually I’m on the other side of the bed cuddling a body pillow and slobbering all over my other pillows. (Now you know why I’m always washing the linen with Snuggle).
There have been a few times (once) where Rose and I went to be cuddling and woke up still in the same position. I swear my right arm and shoulder never hurt so much. I couldn’t move shit for a few minutes, and it was sore for a few days. Oh well, I’m glad Rose accepts my lack of all-night snuggling skills. Can anybody out there snuggle all night?
I’m sure everyone has seen the commercial for the Snuggie. It’s a blanket with sleeves. For the people who hasn’t seen the commercial, yes I’m being serious, a blanket with sleeves. They have reportedly sold over 4 million of them.
I guess the Snuggie is part of pop culture now. Snuggie fan clubs are all over the place. There are at least over 100 just on Facebook. There’s even a web site where fans can post photos and videos of Snuggie sightings. (Isn’t that one of the signs of the apocalypse?)
If you have great marketing or a great slogan you can sell anything in this country. You see it weekly at the movies. Some lame ass movie will make tons of money. Last month the latest version of Friday the 13th made the most money for a couple of weekends, and I’m sure many in here will point out Obama winning the election with a great slogan.
I really don’t care what people wear in the privacy of their own home. Lord knows I worn some crazy shit. Plus who could get mad at kids wearing Snuggies. But to be perfectly honest if I saw a grown ass man wearing a Snuggie at a football or baseball game I’m hitting him with a hotdog. Okay a slight exaggeration anybody who knows me knows I’ll never throw away a ballpark frank but I definitely would hit him with the wrapper and probably some popcorn and maybe with somebody else’s beer.
A sniglet is a neologism defined as "any word that doesn't appear in the dictionary, but should". The term was created by writer/actor/comedian Rich Hall, who first created a series of Sniglets while he was a performer on the 1980s HBO comedy series Not Necessarily the News. Each episode of the monthly series featured a regular segment on Sniglets by Hall. Hall's own sniglets along with submissions by fans were compiled into several books, starting with Sniglets and More Sniglets.
- Snackosphere: The air inside a bag of potato chips.
- Sniffleridge: The groove running between the nose and the mouth (Hall 1984: 92). (The real name for this structure is the philtrum.)
The above paragraph and examples are from Wikipedia. I used those 2 examples only because they started with “sn”.
I was trying to hurry up and come up with my own singlet that started with “sn” but nothing was coming to me. The only thing I could come up with is to combine the words Snuggle (the fabric softener) and ugly.
So here’s my lame attempt.
Snuggly: A person so unattractive you want to stuff them in a washer or dryer.
Okay, not so great. So help me out and write your own sniglets here.
