We'lll come home and be given our post by our Mum with the line, "Sorry I thought it was for me! Greek Mums always open your post to make sure that the 'paidi' (the child) is ok and not in "TRUPPLE! If we're the youngest of the family, regardless of our age, we will always and forever be called "to paidi" (the child). As tradition, we take the names of our grandparents and so therefore the names duplicate. If she's been to the xorio (the village) you'll find chamomile, oregano, basil, sage, thyme, cinnamon etc. Oh and that person that lives 300 miles away in a village who doesn't even share your family name is your auntie. Every Greek person has that one family member, normally a Yiayia, who travels back from wherever they've been with a suitcase filled to the point of explosion with spices. Turn it around so your hand faces you rather than doing a snakehead facing forward. As I write this, I'm laughing, because I know just how much we use our hands to express our words. Make your four fingers into a half Pac Man and press them against your thumb. offered the chance to once a week take a walk down memory lane, nostalgically transporting you back to a time when your biggest concern was who you were taking to your sorority/fraternity formal, or which house you were paired with for Greek Week, or how your house was doing in intramural sports that week.
Even though we still cry when we think about the KT house getting knocked down (we'll never forgive you, Lasker Parkes), Foster thinks it was the right way to end the show."We had four years, so I think we had a good run," Foster says. I think having it end the way it ended was sad but all good things must come to an end. You could be 72, 43 or 21 and you will always be called, the child. The amount of times I've wound my Gran up by telling her that the Greeks didn't create the English language, or Western civilisation or that the Olympics were invented by another country. *in a heavy Greek accent but spoken in English; 'THEE GRIKS CREATED EVERYYYTHING! Oh and before you say anything about the current economic state of Greece, well don't say anything, because if we didn't create the English language you wouldn't be able to say it! (aunt and uncle) There are two types of people in this World. We don't do passion by half measures, and especially not in feeling and expressing the love for our music. Families, especially meddling mothers and granny's try and set up the girls with 'a nice nn Greek boi' since the beginning of womb time! We believe that if someone is envious (in a good or bad way) of you, the evil eye will be cast by him/her, onto you. My Yiayia still calls my youngest uncle 'to paidi' and I am still referred to as 'the paidi' or 'the mikri' (the little girl) in my family. As a matter of fact, there will always be at least a few Marias in every Greek family. and probably some spinach thrown in; and a stem of a plant they came across and ripped out the ground to plant in their garden at home. Including civilisation, the English language and the Olympics. Greeks living in Greece love Greece so much that they even want to holiday in Greece. Okay, twenty-five is a little excessive but no seriously, we come as tribes. Our Great Grandparents and Grandparents didn't have i Phones, or i Pads or even TV's back then so you know… We have many relatives who aren't actually relatives but everyone is 'Thia' and 'Thio'. We feel every single word with passion, with an ache. Greek songs are almost always about undying passion, or passionate pain, or passionate love. We believe in the power of the evil eye categorically. Direct translations of our language always make me laugh, and by literally saying "your eyes fourteen", our elders are pre-warning us to be careful.
Our parents' and grandparents' favourite phrase to say to the offspring when they're going on a night out, going on holiday, going for a walk, going on a date, crossing the road, ANYTHING.
" Believe it or not, I'm not calling my sister a wanker, but rather, in some twisted affectionate way, "sister".
