No, it's not the golf mo'olelo just yet - gotta save something for FGF right?
After my basketball league play yesterday, a bunch of us were hanging around the gym talking story and as we were leaving the gym, a friend (on another team) asked if we wanted shoes.
BL: "Wat kine shoes? They stolen?"
Friend: "No! Get sale at where I work."
BL: "Wat kine sale?"
Friend: "50% off most everything."
BL: "FO REALZ?!? No joke?"
Friend: "Yup. You like go?"
BL: "Heck yeah!!!"
So I book it home to ask Da Wife if she like go cause it is shopping after all.
BL: (calling from outside) "BABE! Get ready!"
Da Wife: "Get ready for what?"
BL: "My friend get friends/family appreciation sale - 50% off! Go get ready for go."
Da Wife: (five minutes later) "Nah, I no like go."
BL: "Huh? You feelin' ok?" (feeling her head)
Da Wife: (borderline SOS) "YES! I don't feel like going... plus I don't need anything."
BL: "Ok.... see ya!"
I for one certainly ain't passing up 50% athletic footwear and apparel.
So there we were.... seven of us..... all adults..... all male review. ("Not that there's anything wrong with that" - Seinfeld)
I didn't even realize it until after we were walking through the mall from the first store to the second looking around you either seen all girls or boy/girl groups - not an all guy group... carrying shopping bags! Believe me, it was sight you'll probably only see once in your life time or at least if we all had our women next to us it wouldn't have looked too bad.
One of our friends was a kid in a candy store practically buying everything he could get his hands on. I was ragging on him cause there he was, a slender asian wearing modern eyeglasses picking out "gangsta" clothing and asking us,
Friend: "How does this look?"
BL: (laughing) "Brah, Wassap Wit Dat! You going all gangsta on us?"
Friend: "No. Don't you think it looks cool?"
BL: "Uh, no." (still laughing)
Friend: "I don't have this kind of shirt and it's only ten bucks!"
BL: "You going UC (undercover) or wat?"
Friend: "No, but I wouldn't buy it at $20."
Which was a good point and probably das why we were going nuts getting our deal on! We'd nevah even think about how we'd "look" shopping and just the fact we were getting an unreal hookup was reason enough to test da manhood - and it was legal.
After finishing up at the third and final store, ALL of us had at least one bag full of goodies.....
We split up and booked it home right aftah.
SHOUT OUT #1: Mahalos to Ben for da great hookup! Can't wait for da next one to roll around!
SHOUT OUT #2: Golf mo'olelo to come on FGF so stay tuned..... let's just say it was pretty interesting.
