Snafu. It’s a word that many have used. Until recently, my wife just used it as a word not knowing it was an acronym. That’s pretty funny to me.

When I was younger, I played a game on Intellivision called “SNAFU”. It was basically two player snake with two other computer opponents. Or as I imagined- it was like playing the light cycles from TRON. I also played the game frequently in my early 20’s with friends- we were addicted to it.

When I was 19, I went to Scotland and there was a bar called “Snafu”. I can only imagine what sort of shenanigans would happen there. I’ve had some drunken Snafu moments, that’s for sure. None at that bar though.

The term SNAFU is used pretty regularly in my life. Be it at home, with friends or at work. It’s a great way to describe how regularly things are messed up. Especially on a Monday.

But as long as it doesn’t escalate to FUBAR, everything will be ok.
