John looked at the card he had selected from the deck.

"I have no idea what this is," he admitted.

"How hard can it be?" Rodney asked.

"Well, if I don't know what it is, it's pretty hard to play the game," John said.

"Make something up," Ronon offered. "It's what I do."

"Oh, thank you very much!" Rodney protested. "No wonder you're winning."

"It is a way to learn more about Earth," Teyla reminded them.

"I am from Earth and I have no idea what this is," John repeated. He turned the card over to show everyone. "Fairy lights?



Rodney rolled his eyes. "Christmas lights, if you must know."

"Christmas lights?" John repeated. "Never heard them called this." He waved the card.

"Why are they called fairy lights?" Teyla asked.

"That I don't know," Rodney admitted. "I think it's British, so why it's a card in Dictionary, I have no idea."

"What is a fairy?" Teyla asked.

"A mythological creature, generally with some type of special powers," Rodney offered. "Sometimes they are small creatures that can fly and shine with a special light."

"Can I pick again?" John whined.

"Sure, go ahead," Ronon said.

John looked and groaned. Sniglet

Whilst I know what fairy lights are (being British) I have no idea what a Sniglet might be.
A sniglet is a word that should exist but doesn't.

Like: Doork, a person who always pushes a 'pull' door!

Thanks!
Hee!
Great story, I have no idea what a sniglet is either, are we Brits missing something important?
