Skid?

Okay guys, every time I think I know what is being referred to as "skid" I keep hearing it in a
different context which throws doubt on my previous assumption about what it meant. That happened
again today on an accustats tape. What cue ball / object ball interaction is really being referred
to by the term "skid"?

Kick
   At snooker and English billiards, the action you get when the cue
   ball sticks to the object ball for an instant.  The most likely
   explanation is that it is from dirt, and especially chalk, between
   the balls at the instant of impact.

Skid
   Also called cling.  The US term for "kick" -- see above.
