Wassup Wit Dat!


May 15th, 2013

Every generation has their own "language" wea there are just certain things you say, it'll define wat era you were brought up in. Some stick with you throughout your lifetime while oddahs will just come and go as da fad wears off. Still get some dat while it may not be in your decade, you use da catch phrase or have "adopted" it.

Phrases or words like "cool", "totally", "hang loose", "chillin'", "make whoopee" and "OMG / LOL" (yes, those are said letter by letter just as much as they are written). Then there are things we say everyday without even really tinking and it just comes out "naturally" whether it's your generation or not. We also "substitute" words like "frick" (you know wat dat's for), "b-yatch" (still means da same thing) and I actually used "fudge" and it ain't for eating.

Having Da Baby around learning, speaking and soaking up things like a sponge, Da Wife has busted me on more than a few occasions of saying, "Jesus". I really don't know wea I picked dat up from or even how come I say it but I know Heaven isn't too happy for breaking one of da 10 Commandments on way more than a few occasions. It's something dat just.... comes out, no mattah how much I try not to say it.

I guess it's a blessing in disguise for having a speech impediment wea I kinda butcher words dat have a "ch", "sh" or anything close to those sounds. I can enunciate it correctly with conscience effort but I'm unconscience in everyday conversation - flipping it on and off only wen I gotta be "proper" like Pidgin.

Da Baby has picked it up and uses it in its correct context too but thankfully she's heard it "wrong". She actually says "Cheesus" instead of "Jesus". Yup, cheese + zess. Well thank goodness I got a speech impediment huh?

So guess wat I've been saying instead now? You got it, "Cheesus". Well I guess it wouldn't mattah either way cause of my speech impediment cause I'm still saying it "wrong". LMAO! 😆

Wassup Wit Dat!

Wat have you caught yourself saying constantly? Wat irks da heck out of you wen you hear it? Have you tried to stop? Have you substituted words with something else?

But we all know there's one thing you all say...... Wassup Wit Dat! 😉 😉

    HI BL! Glad you found a moment to commiserate with us. 😉

  7. Uncle Rodney:

    Aunty Paula used to work with one lady who when frustrated would say "Jesus!".

    When she was really frustrated, she'd say "Jesus, Mary, Joseph!".

  8. wafan:

    Heard a long time ago "Jesus H. Christ". Never figured out what the "H" initial stood for.

    Friends from Wahiawa used to say a word I cannot remember. Something to do with a thing being lame.

    And, of course, from Maui, "some ono". First time I heard it I asked which foods were not ono. Got the weirdest looks (well, weirder than I usually got) from the kids before they burst out laughing.

  9. Uncle Rodney:

    LOL! Like some are ono and some aren't. My MIL uses the term "no ono". Like I'll go suggest we go to this restaurant and she'll say "Nah, I wen dea once - no ono".

  10. dihudfan:

    eh you korean... aigooo
    I married to one, and it became a habit... aigoooo

  11. M:

    Good morning BL!

  12. Annoddah Dave:

    BL: I often revert to German, and say"scheize" or French and say "merde" only Europeans will know what I am swearing. In German they say "fick" instead of ....

  13. Kage:

    Good morning.

    @wafan - the word you can not remember is "safe". When someone said something lame, you would reply with, "you so safe, eh"

  14. M:

    Howzit BL!
    Happy FGF!

  15. wafan:

    @Kage . . . that is the word. Safe. HA!

    Funny how slang takes on a life of its own.

    That time on Maui all the food was ono; but some were more ono than others. Onoier? Onoist? Onoer?

    I wonder if the "no ono" hails from the plantations? I heard it a lot from my uncles and aunts and their uncles and aunt who all grew up on the plantations on Maui.

  16. sally:

    There's also, when something is bland tasting, we say it "no mo' ono". Diff from "no ono", cuz it's not junk, just bland.

    Okay, same diff yah?

  17. zzzzzz:

    wafan, no feel bad. "Some" is Maui pidgin (like "choke" used to be BI pidgin).

    The food that is more ono that the others would be called.... mo' ono.

  18. 9thIslandGirl:

    I always say oh my Good, and my daughter tells me to stop taking the name of the Lord in vain!
