I think this is what it says, somebody wrote a letter and I can't read the handwritting?

The R's might be v's and the w's might be d's?

It makes no sense to me, either way.

It looks like "Den prepei na" and what follows could be "einai", but it would help to know the rest of the line. In Greek: It shouldn't be/It mustn't be/It can't be (the 'be' being in doubt).

It could be "Den prepei na ipia" or "Δεν πρέπει να ήπια" in Greek characters meaning "I don't think I drank (too much)" or "I can't have drank (too much)" referring to a previous instance - possibly last night! The "too much" part is not actually written in the phrase but I believe - if this is the case - that we're talking about alcohol :-)

Hpia (Drank) was the first thing that came to my mind too, Angeliki, but the Sherlock Holmes in me told me that p in wpewei stood for 'r', so we don't have Greeklish here but Greek cursive of some sort. So the 'einai' was off the top of my head, as a sensible short word that can follow "Den prepei".

It could be of course, we can never know until we are given the context. I just noticed my mistake! Of course, what I meant was "have drunk" instead of "drank". It seems like the person that drank too much last night was me just before writing this! :-))
