New Word: Maternal Overpass

A sniglet is a word which should be in the dictionary, but is not. Please, feel free to suggest new words to me by e-mail or via the comment form, or send me a link if you write your own blog posting.

ma·ter·nal o·ver·pass

The shortcut a toddler takes when being chased by her father in circles around her mother who is lying on the floor. This maneuver is most often followed by a guttural groan emitted by the mother, initiated as the toddler dives onto the mother’s tummy and air rapidly vacates the mother’s lungs.

Variation: paternal overpass.
