I am beginning to resent all the Christmas parties and get togethers that require that I bring "a gift". I have no interest in buying a gift for "someone", and, as an adult, I have even less interest in opening a gift from "someone" who didn't buy it for me. If you want to buy a gift for me and put on the tag "For Jack" then I appreciate it with all my heart and with much gratitude. But when I get a gift from "male gift" I find it hard to muster the necessary enthusiasm. It seemed like we were getting away from this kinda thought for a while, but this Christmas, I've been buying more gifts for people I don't know, and receiving gifts from people I don't want to that... oh well...

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
