I Screw the WORDS

I cant speak Hawaiian but I've learned few words that are commonly used here, words that you can hear everyday from locals, like local name of things, fish, verbs, and adjectives. Last Friday I went to the farmer's market (I love the bag that Lyn gave me), I saw fresh fish that local call it "Akule." The husband likes that fish so I called him and ask him if he want me to get some of it, I said "I saw fresh "okole" (means butt) you want me to get some?, I hear silence on the other end seems like he is analyzing what I meant and then he go "you mean akule?" I laugh because I just realized that what I told him means different than what I suppose to mean. I always miss pronounce local words. LOL
