What Jewish/Hebrew/yeshivish/Yiddish/etc. words do you use regularly?

I don’t mean extended Yiddish curses that you break out for fun, I mean words, expressions, speech patterns that you slip into casual conversation. Stuff that you’d code-switch away from if you weren’t with other Jews.

Like I’ll say that my kid is shluffy instead of sleepy, or that I found a gezunte cauliflower at the supermarket. If someone is bugging me when I’m in the middle of something I’ll tell them rega. For context, I’m what you might call right wing modern Orthodox and grew up that way.

I’m curious what’s normal to other people though!
