State Rep. Faye Hanohano on Friday chose "pilikia" -- the Hawaiian word for "trouble" -- as the Hawaiian word of the day in remarks in Hawaiian and English on the House floor.
"Trouble of any kind, great or small, problem, nuisance, bother, adversity, affliction, accident, difficulty, inconvenience, tragedy, lack," Hanohano said, reading the dictionary definition of the word. "In trouble, troubled, bothered, cramped, crowded, unsafe.
"A'ole pilikia, no trouble, no problem. Ke noho kaua a pilikia ia au, when we live together and I get into difficulties."
