Definition

Imperceptible, laggardly, lethargic, apathetic, reluctant move made to retrieve wallet from back-pocket when the bill arrives at the table, when tickets have to be purchased for the group, or when you're out with friends and the brats begin clamoring for ice-creams.

Usage

At the ticket counter:
Ticket-clerk: 20 balcony aa? 3000 kodi.
Pappu: Er... um.... (glances round at the group and begins interminable movement of hand towards back-pocket)
Mappu: (leaps forward with the cash) : Thago, kanno
Gappu (aside) Slow draw, machaaaa.
