I'm not a 100% certain but da only place I know wea May Day is celebrated and 'performed', is hea in Hawai'i. It is probably one of da biggest 'performances' by kids younger than 12 involving every school in Hawai'i which leads to me ask, is every elementary school in Hawai'i "required" to have a May Day program as I don't recall any in intermediate or high school?
I still remembah back in my hannah-battah days of da May Day court and da ceremony/performances dat followed. You see da court all dressed up along with da plethora of flowers and of course ti leaves.
Fast forward many many years, Da Wife and I watched Da Keiki at her final May Day performance in preschool da oddah day and boy was it 'entertaining', well, from wat we could see.
Naturally we take our seats and in the Pearl City Auditorium and who sits in front of us? The world's two tallest Asians. How ironically WWD! is dat? We're there 45 minutes early, grab some "good seats" and Da Wife and I being on da shorter side of da Asian scale, da two tallest sit in front of us.
Wassup Wit Dat!
I turned to Da Wife and we both kinda chuckled and "knew" dat would happen. Wen Da Keiki's class went up to perform, wat put da Hawaiian salt on da wound was dat since since she's one of da taller kids in her class (dat is so oxymoron-ish) she was put in da back row and because of da angle, we couldn't hardly evah see her regardless. Even wen they moved side to side and she was finally in view, da person in front of her would block her seconds latah.
Ha ha ha. Classic.
Have you evah been "blocked"? Are you auditorium seat challenged wea chances are your view is usually blocked or hindered? For those opposite, are you self conscious about blocking anyone?
