My family and I decided to play Boggle on Sunday night. We haven't played it in a LONG time, but it used to be a family favorite. While looking for the directions, I saw a bunch of old, yellowing word lists, and I picked up this one, written by my mom. Can you find the word that doesn't belong? .......that's right: snook. I presented my finding to mom (who didn't even attempt to deny it was hers--totally her hand writing), and we ganged up on her: What does snook mean? We assaulted her with possibilities, while she ripped this out of my hand and tried to throw it away (I saved it, but got a big wedgie in the process) "Hey Mom! I thought I heard someone snooking around outside!" or: "My mind snooked away from me!" or perhaps "Would you take a snook at that?!" After some good laughs, I decided to look it up, just in case it really IS a word. Unfortunately, I found this:
1. Any of several chiefly marine percoid fishes of the family Centropomidae, especially Centropomus undecimalis, a food and game fish of warm Atlantic waters. Also called sergeant fish.
2. A gesture of defiance, disrespect, or derision.
I guess I shouldn't snook my mom.
