Sniglet Of The DayChwads (chwadz) – n. The small, disgusting wads of chewed gum commonly found beneath table and counter tops.

Chwads are something we don’t usually see, but we know they are there. In school, we tend to find them under desks, which might be one of the many reason we really should not be chewing gum in class, let alone the fact that it might end up in someone’s hair. In casual restaurants and diners, people, for some stupid reason, will put the gum under the table rather than wrapping it up in one of the many paper napkins freely offered on the table. In theatres, they are just part of the cinemuck, but this kind sticks to the seat, and not to the floor. Chwads come in many different flavours, but most of us are too grossed out by them to find out what kind. We usually leave that to the bugs to find out. If the ants want that bubblegum, let them have it. If a palmetto bug wants minty fresh breath, by all means, have a go at it, but do it late at night when no one is there to see it, and get even further grossed out by it. We can get grossed out enough by watch movies like Piranha, or playing games like Amnesia. There are always going to be chwads everywhere, just do your best not to add to their population.

Sniglet Of The DayBalderdash – (n.), a rapidly receding hairline.

So many men in their 40s through and beyond are still seeing a balderdash everyday, or for a shorter version, a fralp (forehead + scalp = fralp). There are some ways to combat this. Some of those overpriced prescription vanity pills, or special kinds of shampoos or mousses. If a man still has courage, he could take the balderdash all the way for that Egyptian priest look that was so popular five thousand years ago, or even on the metal band, Disturbed, now. Chasing a balderdash does not have to be a challenge, with all the ways a man can catch it these days. Be careful of those days in the summer sun if you do have a balderdash. Lack of a good sunscreen at a Central Florida themepark in the summer can lead to a balderdash of many shades of red, from pale pink to dark magenta, and yes, I have seen this happen! These poor British guys just were not ready the havoc the Orlando sunshine will do to wreck their skin. So guys, cover up that cueball this summer with something, and if you must chase the balderdash, from the inside (Propecia) or outside (Rogaine), be sure to have some sunscreen as a back up until you catch it.

Sniglet Of The DayAeropalmics (ayr o palm’ iks) – n. The study of wind resistance conducted by holding a cupped hand out the car window.

Summer breeze makes you feel fine and…. makes you want to study aeropalmics. Not exactly sure when this science was first taken up, but people have been doing it for decades. Some of us merely rest our elbows on the open window, but some of us just have to see how many times the rush of speeding air against our cupped hands will rotate as we are driving down interstates or country roads. Sometimes it is a sight to see, driving behind two people on either side of the car that are studying aeropalmics. the viewer sees a car with two rotating arms from either side of the car, and it makes for a cute photo op. Most anyone whom can reach high enough to get their arm out the car window has attempted to study aeropalmics in their own fashion, because there really is no wrong way of doing it. There are never any readings taken, and this study is down purely for fun, and usually out of boredom. How many of us will be studying aeropalmics today on our commute home from work or class? Depending on where you might be, probably many.

Sniglet Of The DayZibula (ZI bew luh) – n. The plastic spine which model car parts come attached to.

While I’m not one to build models, Cleave is, so he has encountered the zibula many times over the years. It must be pretty interesting to see the molds they use when putting all those parts on the zibula, but that is not for our eyes to see. We just hope that all the parts are there, and we might enjoy our model-building time by inhaling the vapors of glue and paints, then wondering why the models never look like they do on the box when we get done. Might have something to do with the fumes from the glue and the paints. Zibulas come in many colours, but I’m guessing the most common is black for all those interiors, maybe grey for those spaceship models we never see any more, but some devoted middle-aged Star Wars/Star Trek geeks might have stashed in their homes somewhere to work on when they retire. Where do discarded zibulas end up? Most likely in the workshop/bedroom trash bin, or it becomes a toy for a lucky cat. Zibulas are here to stay so long as we are going to build models, and as long as there plastic molds to be filled with parts for your mini version of a 1965 Ford Mustang.

Sniglet Of The DayParkrastinate n. The inability to decide which parking space to choose in a near empty parking lot.

So it’s around 6 AM in the morning wherever you are. The quick service restaurants and doughnut shops are open, as are some supermarkets, and the scents of freshly-made, warm baked good fills the air, as does the aroma of petroleum products as early risers gas up their cars en route to work or class. Oddly, even though the stores and restaurants are in full business, and the coffee is beckoning you to come in and get a cup, for some reason, there are all these empty parking spaces before you, and you just do not know which one to take. You cannot parkrastinate for too long, because those danishes are getting more stale by the minute. Those bacon, egg, and cheese biscuits and crunchy hash brown potatoes are waiting, and it is their destiny for you to consume them. Once this delightful task is taken care of, you might encounter more parkrastination along the way as you head into other stores or places just opening up. Being a morning person has its advantages, and hopefully you will get over your parkrastination soon, because those empty spaces won’t stay that way for much longer.
