The word "gossip" originates from god-sib, the godparent of one's child or parent of one's godchildren ("god-sibling"), referring to a relationship of close friendship. The Oxford English Dictionary traces the usage of godsib back as far as 1014.
Each of the following clues is about a single word with the smaller words "and", and "or" inside. They're not jumbled, but may appear in reverse order. I will give you the other letters in proper order. Hope you have a good time and/or fun!
