Today is Thanksgiving back home, and all of my friends and family in the US are partaking in the great tradition of stuffing themselves to the limit with food. Afterwards, they will partake in the next great tradition: loosening their belts, groaning about how much they ate, and generally lying around in a stupor.
There’s no single verb to describe this in English. But there is in Portuguese.
Jiboiar (jih-boy-YAR) means “to digest in repose after having ingested an abundant meal.” It comes from the noun jiboia, which means…a boa constrictor. Which, of course, is a large snake that eats huge meals and then lies around motionless while digesting.
This is such a perfect word. America, you need to adopt it.
