Testing Da Manhood

No, it's not the golf mo'olelo just yet - gotta save something for FGF right? :wink:

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. :wink:

So there we were.... seven of us..... all adults..... all male review. :shock: ("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. :roll:

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. :razz:

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. :lol:

 

 

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.

SHOUT OUT #3:     Congrats to all da boys (7) with Hawaii ties making it in da NFL Draft! Good luck to a successful NFL career!

SHOUT OUT #4:     Congrats to Hawaii's own Brian Viloria for capturing the IBF Junior Flyweight title with a TKO in the 11th round!

    FIRST!!!!!


  2. Ocean Lover:

    BL.....with the new format on the web pages... kinda hard to find WWD. Or do we have a (gasp) CONSPIRACY?

    "If it ain't broke...don't fix it" comes to mind.......WHAT WAS BROKEN with the old way?

    OL


  3. 9th Island Girl:

    I agree with OL! I hate the new format! It looks cramped somehow.

    Aw, too bad you didn't buy the gangsta stuff, then you could either take some funny pictures or use it for your Halloween costume next year. ;)


  4. AC:

    BL, so where are the pics of your loot from the shopping spree?


  5. rayboyjr:

    BL ... would have no problem in shopping with guys only ... mo fast!

    Would also have no problem watching movies with all guys (one seat apart of course!) Going out to dinner with all guys is ok. Going to the beach is ok too ...

    The one thing that would kinda feel awkward is going to a carnival or fair with all guys. Most of the rides are out of the question cause going sit too close together. :)


  6. Coconut Willy:

    50% OFF. No can resist Yah!


  7. jaydee:

    Shopping with a group of guys is boderline for me, and for my friends, for that matter. Eh, nothing wrong with that but I'm just sayin.... :)

    But you were shopping for sporting goods so that's passible...kind of. j/k

    Speaking of the new format, I have to agree. It looks kind of "mushed" together. Also, how's about an Avatar for the readers and bloggers like us? I blog on other newspaper web-sites and they have this feature. Ok, that's my rant for the day.


  8. HNL2LAS:

    50% off and NONE of da women wanted fo go?? AI YA!! Heck ya, I woulda went... chance for buy SHOOZ??? At half price???? I wish I saw you guys.. I woulda been laffin .....NAH! Big deal... hehe...

    I too, think the new format sucks! I have such a hard time finding "my" blogs......Glad it ain't just me...


  9. BananaFysh:

    Hey BL --

    You better take Da Wife to the doctor, she's obviously sick. A woman that turns down sh0e shopping? :shock: And a huge sale on top of that? :shock: :shock:
    (Nah nah nah, just kidding Teri! No slap me! I get my own wife to slap my head! :razz: )

    When you hear about a 50% off sale, "need" goes out the window, and then it becomes about "want." ;) Good job working that discount! :D


  10. KAN:

    Right on BL! Score!


  11. tita leerz:

    So you guys were a bunch of Imeldas this weekend? LOL!

    Yay Brian!!!! On the same note, Go Manny!


  12. Scott:

    Did we win ?!

    I guess I'll find out friday.....
    We finished out in dramatic fashion with an eagle, thanks to BL's clutch drive and Snow's son's second shot from 170 yards. The putt was easy.


  13. NKHEA:

    Howzit BL and everybody :)

    Sorry waz MIA for awhile :( my father pasted away kinda sudden, but all good, he lived a long healthy life, he would have made 90 last Monday 8O

    Thanks everybody for all the support and kind words ;) me and IKHEA really appreciate it :)

    Not so MLC friendly? :razz:

    Aw, too bad you didn't buy the gangsta stuff, then you could either take some funny pictures or use it for your Halloween costume next year.

    Would have rather put my kala to "good use" instead. :grin:

    AC:
    BL, so where are the pics of your loot from the shopping spree?

    I didn't buy too much. Just a pair of running shoes, some shorts and athletic tape..... there were a whole bunch of oddah stuff I wanted but had to show restraint. :sad:

    rayboyjr:
    BL ... would have no problem in shopping with guys only ... mo fast!

    Well...... not with my one friend..... I tend to take my time too but I didn't want to go nutz in there.

    The one thing that would kinda feel awkward is going to a carnival or fair with all guys. Most of the rides are out of the question cause going sit too close together.

    Wat about like Six Flags? You'd sit next to them right?

    NKHEA....is back

    Was there evah any doubt? :grin:


  15. bamboohouse808:

    BL - No worries about shopping wit da boys. Back in da day, a couple of us guys wit girlfriends would go shopping for Christmas presents for our better halves. Never really thought about it but it must have looked funny kine having a bunch of guys shopping for ladies jewelry and stuff. :shock:


  16. M:

    Good Morning BL! :)

    Did you get what you wanted shopping?

    NKHEA, my condolences to you and your family.


  17. tita leerz:

    yeah, what IS up with the new format? and i'm not even an MLCer.
    btw, aren't man bags called scrotums?


  18. bamboohouse808:

    My condolences to you and your family NKHEA.


  19. roach:

    BL,

    Your "kid in the candy store" sounds like my wife's attitude about shopping at a 50% off sale. Its sooooooooo cheap, I must need to buy something.


  20. Bre:

    NKHEA, I am sorry to hear about your dad. 89 is pretty good! I hope I make it that long.


  21. ZX6R:

    NHKEA, sorry for your loss, but as you said, he lived a good healthy life. You can at least be thankful for that.

    And another thumbs down vote for the new format. I don't like it either.

    BL, you're not getting phobic on me are you? I mean we're all secure males here, aren't we? It's not like you went shopping for BVDs together or anything like that. That would be WRONG.


  22. opso:

    BL - eh.....main thing you fellas neva make like da guys in da Heineken commercial when you folks arrived at da store. haha!! :lol:

    and maybe your friend found his "LaFawnduh" and stay trying fo turn him gangsta.......y'know.....like Kip in Napoleon Dynamite. hah!

    NKHEA - my condolences to you and your family. and we're all glad that you're back! :D


  23. Rodney:

    Aww, cute. Did you guys hold hands and skip from store to store? :mrgreen:

    Guys, try tell da wives that they just missed da Webco sale. Was this past Saturday. Dat should make dem happy. :twisted:


  24. NKHEA:

    Thanks everybody you folks da best

    btw; mistake, my dad would have been 95

    NKHEA...lucky to have friend like you folks...thanks again :)


  25. Scott:

    @Rodney, I worked at Webco for 3 years. I don't miss having to wake up at 3 am to work those Webco sales!


  26. Rodney:

    @Scott - you used to work at Webco?! So you could've gotten early entry tickets for me - to give Paula - so Paula can go - and I can sleep in? :grin:

    You don't miss having to wake up at 3 am, but look - you're still waking up at 3 am. But for a different reason. :smile:


  27. Ynaku:

    Wea da picture? I like see the MAN gang.


  28. Kelli:

    Aigoo! Sale and Da Wife neva like go? I would have gone!

    And yes, big congrats to the Hawaii guys who got drafted/free agents. WOOHOO! Nice to see the team on Saturday at the Warrior Bowl, too.


  29. kate:

    Eh sorry BL, but I think I would be like your wife. Athletic apparel and and shoos won't do it for me. Even at 50% off. I only buy those things if I need them. I use my treadmill at home so I no need to dress up to go to the gym. I even have gym membership but I haven't gone in a long time.

    On the other hand, if the sale was at NORDSTROM, I am there!


  30. anklebiters:

    BL:

    I can just see it in my mind...the men shopping in a group, trying on this and that, a high pitched scream of Look ! You think they have this in yellow?. And then I wake up from my dream :lol:

    There's your side of the story, then there's our side and the truth is somewhere in the middle :lol:

    Did Teri have a fever or something :?: No woman ever misses a 50% off sale :shock:


  31. bB:

    lucky you got the hook ups.

    i would have bought stuff too. now days i watching what i spend, but for that i would have gone nuts. :lol:


  32. Ynaku:

    Whoa tita, I re-reading the post and yours almost made me spit out my guava juice.

    :P


  33. GA Bows:
