    I may be Kia'aina but definitely Keiki at heart. I called in sick the other evening to have a night of fun. Yes! I played hooky. Mom, I don't wanna go to school today. I feel sick cough, cough.

Suggestions welcome!

    In case you're curious, here's the breakdown right now:

    Keiki: 0 posts
    Haumana: 20 posts
    Kanaka: 50 posts
    Luna: 100 posts
    Kia`aina: 200 posts
    Kumu: 400 posts
    Ali`i: 800 posts
    How about for the "MOTORMOUTHS" group:

    Ali`i Wala`au: 1200 posts

    - Loosely translated in slang, the "Outspoken Chief"



    *Consult an Olelo expert to verify proper translation.

    I received a red chicklet for this post. Why? Did I translate it wrong? I did say to consult an expert. Or is someone offended about being labeled a "motor mouth"? Hey, I didn't make up that name.. Mel did!

    Of course, it was left anonymously. One of 3 reds vs. countless green gums. Mahalo to all the greeny folks out there!

    I've tried that. It didn't get me very far. HaHaHa!
    She just says I'm a Keiki forever, or something close.

    Yeah, well that memory of hers has been a helpful blessing at times. I sure have to follow through on anything I say though. It's like I have an external hard drive with many Gigabytes of memory. HaHaHa!

    Smile Re: Keiki forever?

    I do not mind being called Keiki. It sounds real tacky and funny for a beginner like myself. But when I saw the "Hawaiian Dictionary" I did not see anything like that in there. Maybe I am wrong correct me if I am wrong.
    Also can somebody tell me what is the word "Paki" come from. I being called all that all my life. I am NOT taking offesenily I kinda like it. I liked to be called to the Paki man or whatever. That is the Hawaiian in me.
    Aloha

    You might want to set up a poll, to determine people's "positions" on that one.
