To break my balls! – Romper los huevos
What does this idiom mean? ‘That someone is annoying another person by constantly criticizing, scolding or nagging them’
Truth be told this is what I have heard for the last 15 years:
”Janette when are you going to:
- Come home?
- Settle down?
- Introduce me to a special friend?
- Use a hairbrush?
- Use a bit of makeup?
- Wear a dress, a skirt, or anything other than trainers and a tracksuit?
- Learn how to cook?
- Stop messing about?
- Blah, blah, blah
So, it is safe to say, if I had balls, I would have been castrated years ago! And no, unfortunately, I’m not pulling your leg. My own flesh and blood, my mother, thinks I’m pathetic.
