Untranslatable…

Somebody stop me!

Today’s wonderful untranslatable comes from Georgia and is more appropriate to Christmas than the traditional austerity (and dieting!) of January. It is:

Shemomedjamo 

It’s that thing when you’re really really full, but the food is so nom nom nom you just keep on eating. You maybe even push your plate away but then can’t resist just prodding it with a fork and, if it ends up in your mouth, who can blame it?

The nearest translation would be I accidentally ate the whole thing. Haven’t we all?!
