Interesting Japanese: 午後夢中

Posted on April 29, 2014 | genkijacs

Everyone knows the feeling: you've just had lunch, and you're trying to get back into work/studying but you're just...so...tired...

Trust Japanese to have a word for that! That word is 午後夢中 (ごごむちゅう - "gogo muchuu"), lit. "to be in a trance/daze in the afternoon".
To be so tired in those first few hours post-lunch, it feels like you're in a daze or dream...
We've definitely been there!
