The Glorious Glossary of Snit
Welcome to the Glorious Glossary of Snit!
The Glorious Glossary of SNIT is dedicated to the many marvellous mavens of melodrama and misbehaved mademoiselles of mayhem who inhabit the universe.
"Snit" has become synonymous with the unpredictable feisty or flummoxed behavior of all females past the age of puberty. It ranges from the milder version of the supreme "sulk", (also known as seething with stubborness), to the more volatile version, a spitting "Hissy fit", (also known as a titanic temper tantrum if it's exhibited by a male).
Let's face it, these daring drama queens all know how to add the spice of life to any stew - one sassy and spunky spoonful at a time!

And now a word from our fearless leader.
Trust me, Dragon-Ladies don't do snits.
However, that doesn't mean they don't snap, snarl, and blow smoke through their noses when they are more than a bit miffed!!

EVERY HISSY-FITTER KNOWS:
If a man is standing in the
middle of the forest
speaking and there is no
woman around to hear him
... he still wrong!
Are you a feisty female who suffers from super-duper snits?
For those who've ever wondered whether or not they are prone to snits, please proceed to the "SNIT QUIZ" (in the module below).
If you don't know whether your a snitty so-and-so, here are three sure signs that "snit" is in your genes.
1. You get tickled pink after jumping up and down on someone else's tail, (clearly it should never have been there in the first place!)
2. You get a real kick out of playing "Do This Do That", (besides, you know there's no "I" in team!)
3. You can't abide meandering mutts that make a blinking mess of one's pristine lawn, (after all, what self-respecting drama queen would ever be caught dead with a pooper scooper in her hands!)
Note: Those who resemble the curious creature in the inserted illustration, will all qualify immediately for membership in the Super-Duper Snit Club.
Step forward, smile and take a bow...(c'mon, you know how you love to hear a little applause for putting your best foot forward). Oh for pity's sake, do it before someone else tries to rain on your parade or lead it!

THE GLORIOUS GLOSSARY OF SNIT - THE INTRODUCTION
The author of The Glorious Glossary of SNIT, is none other than a sexagenarian siren with a penchant for candy kisses, pink girdles and fishnet stockings by the name of Aphrodite Beamish.
She qualifies to write this curious compendium since she describes herself as nothing less than a "scintillating shrew", a "saucy sour-puss", and a "supreme Snit-Face" for those who dare to ask!
The Glorious Glossary of SNIT" contains many words you've probably never even heard of in your life. And why not after all we are talking about a little-known behavioral pattern better known as "Serenity-Challenged Nerves in Transit" (SNIT), aren't we?
So, if you want to communicate with anyhone in an agitated, bewildered or confused state of mind, it's helpful to know the lexicon of the Solace-Impaired, also known by the correct medical term, "Sunny Disposition Deprived Souls" (SDDS).
This glossary also contains an infinitesimal number of entries devoted to the male HISsy-fitting population in order to quell anticipated criticism from equal opportunity neologists, outrage from the fundamentalist wordmongers, and a sustained campaign of silence organized by politically-correct book reviewers.
