Noun - a brief moment in time in which one is devastated by a painful event. Often includes a sting-like feeling, chest pains, and sunken stomach.
Entymology: The term is taken from the lyrics of the Oasis hit "Don't Look Back in Anger". In the song, the term is used to describe the hurt feelings of "Sally" and the narrator:
"So Sally can wait
She knows it's too late
As she's walking on by
My soul slides away
But don't look back in anger
Don't look back in anger
I heard you say
At least not today"
