Be idle or inactive
Ever wondered what it means when someone says they’re just going to ‘veg’ for a while? This slang term is actually a short form of the word ‘vegetate’. But don’t worry, they’re not turning into a salad! Instead, what they mean is they’re planning to chill out and do nothing, much like a vegetable in a field.
It’s a funny way of saying that they’re going to take a break, maybe sit on the couch, watch some TV, or just relax in general. The term ‘veg’ comes from the idea of being like a vegetable, that doesn’t move or think, just exists.
So, the next time your friend John tells you he’s going to veg this weekend, don’t get him a potting soil. He’s just planning to kick back and take it easy, not start a new life as a tomato!
