- making "boreh"
An external medicine, or coating like a medicine for wood, is paint, or ‘cat’. Thus this could be interpreted that he is painting or putting ‘cat’ on wood. But the word for being fired from a job is ‘mapecat’. And that is similar to ‘having paint’. So, if someone is fired from his job, people say that he is making a ‘boreh’ for wood, or putting on ‘cat, or ‘mapecat’.| ]]
