A aoao kaneko iu emi po iwola li nea.
“The cat peeks out at the humans from her hiding spot.”


My cat lying in wait to ambush us.

So the story behind this is that I opened up my sock drawer, and Keli was fascinated. So I picked her up and put her in. She was confused at first and poked around, but pretty soon, she decided to go into the little cave. And then, not long after that, she was peeking out at us from inside. It was adorable!

Regarding this word, it’s a reduplication of ao, which has no meaning, but does have an iku. There are a couple word/sound/things like that. I think this is the first we’ve come across. There will be others, though. Indeed, there will be others.
