A short break taken in the middle of a large meal to catch one's breath, let food already consumed work its way down to a 'hollow leg', or to build up the mental fortitude before pushing on with the eating. Typically suggests one may already be near capacity, but as it is Thanksgiving or an All You Can Eat (ACYE) buffet, one must push on from first to second helpings, but especially when trying to test the limits of stomach capacity with a third or fourth helping.
Everett honey, you've only had two helpings of turkey and stuffing, are you sure you don't want more? Nana, I'm just taking a dinnermission for a few minutes.
