What does nappetizer mean?

Sleep time between snooze alarms

A nappetizer is the period of sleep a person gets after hitting snooze on his alarm until the alarm sounds again. It is a short amount of time and it wets the person's appetite for more sleep much like an appetizer does for a meal.

Nappetizers are a double-edge sword as they can be wonderful and torturous. The wonderful part is that they mean more sleep and the torturous part is that they end way too soon. The term may also refer to a short nap before a longer sleep.


"This morning was rough. I had about 5 nappetizers before I got out of bed."

Are you done with your nappetizer?
