The word "kowabunga" came from the old Tarzan movies -- and perhaps the comic books, too. I yelled it when I bounced around with my rat pack of buddies, and I encouraged Aaron to say it so he could carry on. He also loved the word, and I well remember the day he hollered "KOWABUNGA!" while on a bus ride to Toronto. Passengers on both sides of us moved out of the way; ...he had a mouth full of Cheezies at the time.
