My Brother is Always Good for a Snirkle!

I make up new words. Today's word? "Snirkle!" It's sort of a cross between a giggle, a smirk, and snarky laughter. Today I snirkled!

Earlier today....a phone conversation with my brother. In regards to our family gathering for Christmas. And food thereof.

  • Me: "The fruitcake is almost gone.
  • Me again: "But I'm going to make another."
  • Brother: "Oh, No!"
  • Brother again: Oh! I mean "Wonderful!"

My brother is always good for a snirkle.

P.S. I am not always good a making up new words. I googled "snirkle" and guess what! It's already taken. It's a candy bar, of all things, that originated in 1920. Man! Am I behind the times! Snirkle, snirkle!

hahaha I think you should make one specially for him since he seems to like it so much!

Love the new word. I will try to employ it multiple times today. I am sure that it will annoy the progeny which will make the whole experience even better.

WhiteStone, I have one of "those" brothers too! I always enjoy your wit and creativity. The word "snirkle" is full of both, even if it's already been taken to name a candy bar. I like your meaning better! Happy holidays to you and yours.

How dare he snirkle at Grandma's fruitcake?!!!! This post made me snirkle too.


A snirkle candy bar sounds like it could give snickers some composition!

Snirkle! I LOVE IT!!

I know I'm not really getting my wishes in on time. The truth is, it's just after midnight, but I still had to come by and wish you the merriest Christmas season ever. I want to thank you for making my life richer by sharing your blog and by reading mine. You are a blessing to me. Merry, merry Christmas, my friend. May the coming week bring you laughter, joy, short returns lines, and lots of good deals at the after-Christmas sales. ;^) Much love, Relyn
