    Means I have the same result - there’s a children’s card game with same name. Cards dealt to x number of players, each lays his cards on one pile. If two players lay same card they yell ‚snap‘ and first to say it keeps all cards. Clear as mud???

    It's from a card game children play. When 2 identical cards are drawn the players have to shout 'snap' and grab for the card. It's generally used to indicate when things are the same, like our BG readings were.

    5.4 at 7.30. BG levels through the day were noticeably lower once the car had been through MOT (failed, but not too damaging) and I could stop stressing about it!

    I’ll probably get my hand slapped for this - it stands for ‘can’t remember ****’!!

    You aren’t wrong! Edited by mod for poorly disguised profanity.
