John: Katja, what's our first expression?
Katja: לעשות פאדיחת (la-asot fadikhot)

[pause - 5 sec.]
John: Use this slang expression when you want to complain that someone just talked for so long, usually about something not interesting, causing you a headache and a great loss of time, (as if they are digging a hole in your head), or when someone is nagging you about something.
