寝ソバしよう appeared in a tweet with a picture of soba noodles attached.

Is this trying to say "You will probably sleep well after eating soba"?

Some of us have 「寝酒 (lit:sleep-sake; nightcap) 」 to help us fall asleep. In the same vein, others might have 「寝ソバ(lit:sleep-soba-noodles; ???)」. Or not.

By the way, "... しよう" usually means "I'll ..." or "Let's ..."

So one possible interpretation may be: "I'll have my night-time soba-noodles so I can sleep well."

  • Yes, I was thinking of でしょう、but I didn't think of ましょう。 – user15675 Jun 6 '16 at 16:20

It's not suggestion. Maybe just reporting he/she is laying down and eating soba. 寝ソバ is not official word.

  • Japanese don't have a custom of eating soba before sleeping, but it's easy to cook soba (just boil, it's all process), so the meaning might be "I will eat soba and sleep soon" – TKG Jun 6 '16 at 14:10
