A pause or moment of relaxation taken at the peak of stress, frustration, anxiety. Used to restore calm or to ward off a full on breakdown or outburst. May involve the eating of a sweet snack (like an oreo cookie) that is high in calorie & low in food value.
After the boss changed the project deadline for the 3rd time, Kaylee had an Oreo moment. She sat at her desk, drank her coffee & ate some cookies,while looking at & speaking to no one.
