I remembah probably about a year ago - probably longer cause I'm makule and always on Hawaiian time - Uncle Rodney from Midlife Crisis had shared a pic with me dat I thought I saved but now sadly can't find but it triggered a flashback as I rode into work dis morning.
Being a holiday today, I was expecting a carefree fast flowing kine of commute into work but as soon as I get on da freeway, it was a bit crowded. Not only was I heading into work an hour earlier, there really shouldn't be "slower" traffic considering. So wat was causing da slowdown? If I only had a hands-free camera (still trying to save up for a Go-Pro ) as wat I saw totally tripped me out.
It was a bright yellow with fairly bright and thick red border around and triple skegs....... if you guessed Ronald McDonald, guess again. It was a frickin' SURFBOARD!
Wassup Wit Dat!
There it was, lying upright on its side leaning against da barrier separating West and East bound traffic kinda buss up but not visibly broken up, a surfboard. How it was placed so nicely and snug against da barrier is a mystery to me cause if da person who lost it had stopped, I'm surah s/he would have just picked it up no? Unless it was causing traffic lying in da middle of da lane and someone just stopped and leaned it so oddahs could pass but in any case, it's an "odd" sight to witness on da H1 freeway just past da Pearl City on-ramp.
You can safely guesstimate dat there wasn't an accident as if there was, I'm surah it would have been picked up at dat time. Anyone seen it dis morning? Anyone wanna guess how long it'll stay there? I'm going to say it'll be there till Sunday.
Evah since watching Lethal Weapon 2, I've always had a fear dat a surfboard - or anything strapped to da roof or rack of a vehicle - would break free and come at me like a scud missile. I literally change lanes or at least drive on da side of da lane dat is not occupied by a projectile.
Wat was da weirdest thing you evah saw on da side of da road? Have you evah witnessed something flying off of a vehicle while traveling? Do you overstrap item(s) or just hope your load doesn't huli off?
Now all I can tink about is wat if da buggah was doing some Teen Wolf action?
SHOUT OUT: Just wanted to see if anybody has tennis rackets to sell? I'm trying to get my "pleasantly plump" friends to be a bit more active and we're rotating activities and tennis came up but none of us has rackets..... I know, I know - Wassup Wit Dat! like play tennis but no more equipment. But if you have one, two or four lying around collecting dust dat you not using, I'll be happy to take them off your hands as long as they not da kine wooden kine eh? Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know how much..... or do you accept kim chee currency?
