"Pono, Not Porno..." 'James "Kimo" Rosen'

Pono Market in Kapa'a Hawaii has one of da best plate lunches on Kaua'i...

Pono, Not Porno

The Hawaiian word pono does not work well on spell check, pono is a frequently used Hawai'ian word that means righteous.

 Many people in Hawaii use popular Hawaiian  words such as  Aloha, A Hui Hou, Mahalo and pono mixed in with everyday conversation. 

 I recently used  the word pono in an email, the spell-check on my computer corrected  it to porno, I wasn't paying attention and the email was sent with the word porno where pono should had been.    

This was an email about the great places to buy a plate lunch on Kauai. It was intended for a woman I just met on e-harmony. I wrote, "I want you to know  I enjoy the Pono market." It read after spell-check, "I want you to know I enjoy the Porno market."

Needless to say because of Spell check I no longer have the potential of this person as a soul mate, although I highly recommend the Pono market for one the best plate lunches on Kaua'i.
