A Phrasal Verb a Day #124 - TO PIG OUT (ON)
= to eat an enormous amount of food – much more than you
“We just pigged out on pizza. I felt so disgusting afterwards.”
Okay, I think you get the idea of why we use the expression
‘pig’, because, you know the way a pig eats. It kind of sticks its
face into the food and just yum, yum, yum, yum, just eats lots of
it like that.
Well, If you ever do that, like, if you…, I don’t know, buy, if you… If you have like a party with your friends and you buy lots of pizza and lots of burgers and stuff and you just eat lots of food and at the end you feel completely full. Well, there is an example of how you obviously just PIGGED OUT on food.
For me this always happens at Christmas time. You get together
with the family and, well, in my case my mum does lots and lots of
cooking. She prepares lots of food and we just sit around for,
like, two or three days just PIGGING OUT on delicious Christmas
I don’t like to PIG OUT on food that much. I find obviously it is a bit unhealthy. But every now and then I must admit that I do like to just… like, go to a restaurant or something and just PIG OUT on really nice food.
So, there you go. TO PIG OUT on food, to binge-eat or just to
binge on food. All right, that is the end of this episode. Another
one will be on its way to you soon.
But for now Goodbye!
