Kummerspeck: grief bacon.

According to the Reader's Digest, I have kummerspeck.  It's the German word for "excess weight gained from emotional overeating.  Literally, grief bacon."

Someone who attends funerals just for the food is a pesamenteiro (Portuguese).  Well, at least I'm not one of those... yet.

As for my grief bacon, I will try to do better by zeg.  (Georgian: "the day after tomorrow.")

Reader's Digest, April 2012, p. 83
