Got Lei'd?

May 15th, 2014
By

It's dat time of year already and I swear it seems like every year, graduation season starts earlier and earlier. I'm not complaining now as an adult since my commute time has been cut a little shorter but as a student back in da day, I'm saying....

Wassup Wit Dat!

Since wen da heck do they pau school in early/mid-May? How da heck do they get weeks off for holiday breaks, finish earlier on Wednesdays, go school half days on exam weeks and still have certain Fridays off?? Boy, if there were dat much days "off" back wen I was in school, I wouldn't have had to create my own "holidays". :razz:

In any case, just a quick poll out there: how many of you going to a graduation dis year? How many graduations? You guys bringing lei? How much you spend per lei?

I only ask cause stay tuned for Friday's blog on a unique gift to present to da graduate on his/her special day. It will be something the graduate will certainly appreciate... and so will all those who don't get one.

    First we had one invite to high school ceremony. Then one more to college ceremony. Now one noddah one came for anoddah high school one. Lei and cash works for everybody. Fresh or ribbon lei are nice either way. 3 dis year not bad.

    Living on the mainland and not having any grand kids, plus youngest relative is sophomore in college in Oregon, no need to get lei'd.

    Aloha WWD,
    I no mo any graduations but "creating my own holidays" struck a chord with me. (Along with my dad's knuckles.)
    I was once told by the vice principal that I had "broken the record for absent days."
    Ah, my poor dad!!!
    Thanks for bringing back an old forgotten about part of my life as a youth.
    P.S. I did graduate with my class though? Go figure?
