look up any word, like hipster:
Contracted form of the Japanese loanword "sukoshi," (adv,n) small quantity; little; few; something; 2) little while 3) short distance.

People from Hawaii seem to love this word. The "u" and "i" may be minimally audible in practice when spoken correctly, and the contracted form is what non-Japanese tend to hear. Sukoshi = skoshi or skosh.
Q: Hey are you going to bail your wife out of jail or just leave her there?

A: I tryin fo tink a skoshi (Please allow me a few moments to consider, kind sir)
