1. Similar to snapita, except that it means "Unexpected blessing in disguise."
Usage: The Miata snapita turned out to be an ubid.

0530, 5 degrees Fahrenheit this morning. The Suburu wouldn't start. Had I not charged up the dead battery on the Miata Saturday, I would have been stuck.
Of course, I used the Subie to jump start the Miata, so there may be a cause/effect relationship at work there. I prefer not to think too much about that, though. Kind of an "every cloud has a gray lining" path there, should I choose to follow it.
Oh, and a 35 mile Miata ride at 5F? Not so very pleasant, truth be told.
