Hawai’i offers up the best in overheard conversations. Some backdrop for today’s lil’ snippet: Summertime; a time when many of the locals camp at the beach all season long. And when locals camp, they do it right: showers, power, sometimes you’ll even find couches, fridges… the works. It’s like a home away from home. And it’s not just a couple people – the whole family (sisters, uncles, cousins, etc.) move in.
Today at a camp spot in Haena, I had the pleasure of overhearing a mom sprucing up, talking to the (extended) family about keeping their summer palace nice and clean:
What are da kine foot baths you put outside the door to soak your feet so you don’t get dirt in the house? We need one uh doze to keep the place clean. Ya ya ya were gonna hafta marry one Japanee I tink.
