I did not know that and I should have but not an imbiber.I did find out this though:

Imbibe is a fancy word for "drink." If you need to imbibe ten cups of coffee just to get out of the house, you might have a caffeine problem.(that's Lana) YIPES! Although the verb imbibe means to take in liquids of any sort, if you don't specify the liquid, people are likely to infer you mean an alcoholic beverage

Did you know you are more likely to be killed by a champagne cork than a poisonous spider?

Imagine that one?  I HATE spiders....jeezezezeze Louise!

Well, I found this  . . . There are 12 letters in the Hawaiian alphabet......a,e,h,i,k,l,m,n,o,p,u,and w, and okina (a symbol that looks similar to an apostrophe) That's 12 letters and a symbol.

AND this

The Hawaiian alphabet has 13 letters: five vowels (long and short) and eight consonants, one of them being the 'okina, a letter which represents the glottal stop.


So I'm guessing take your pick (LOL).

I better get my act together because in 11 days I'll be 67.  I can walk from my bedroom to the laundry room and back again.  Wonder how many round trips would be 2,168 miles?  LOL.  A man's gotta have a fridge and some sustenance for something like that, right?  I can't carry it on my back any longer.
