From icky to humorous; a Hawaiian language lesson

3 03 2020

In papa ʻŌlelo (Hawaiian language class) we are learning about possessives as well as how to build sentences, being mindful of verb tenses. I offered a descriptive sentence from a real-life experience that kumu Keoua Nelsen had fun with:

There was a dead rat in the glove compartment of my car.

Ahahaha!

Translation: There are some dead rats in our car! How many dead rats are in your car? 7 dead rats! Oh, really?! Best that you swap for a new car!

Don’t worry. We cleaned it out!

P.S. The Hawaiian for glove compartment is “ka pahu mikilima,” literally “the mittens box.”
