Way back when I was at Waikowhai Intermediate School, saying “Not even Ow” was all the rage – such a great way to express your objection to something. It really is emotion at its most raw. I remember one time our teacher accused the toughest dude in class (Stephen Soakai) of copying off the smart kid during a maths test – Stephen ripped in to one of the loudest ‘Not even Ows’! I’ve ever heard. Needless to say, the matter was settled then and there, because you can’t really argue with ‘Not even Ow’ can you?
