Sorry...I hate to be so mundane, but I have to pick up a few things at Wal Mart. You know, it might be fun for you to see how our WalMart is different from yours! For instance, do you have wild chickens running amok in your WalMart parking lot?
This aisle is dedicated to your grass skirt, dashboard hula doll, coconut bra, and souvenir gourd needs. You need anything? No? Can't imagine you'd pass on this classy stuff.
How about a lei? These are fake leis--I should've taken a picture of the giant refrigerators with all the fresh flower leis. I forgot, sorry. One thing I've learned--men do NOT like to wear leis, especially Midwestern American men. They rip them off as soon as they are out of sight of the airport. They don't mind the big brown kukui nut kind on the right there--some with shark teeth (plastic) interspersed with black ribbon--those are the more macho manly leis. Just so you know.
Alas. This, my dear friends, is the sum total of the yarn department at our WalMart. Acrylic, acrylic, and more acrylic. Weep for me, my friends, for I suffer greatly. I have been to your yarn departments on the Mainland and have seen with my own eyes your vast wealth of wool, sock yarns, chunky yarns, and blends. Yes, Kauai does have orchids, chickens, and manly-man leis, but you have aisles and aisles of sweet soft woolen fiber to fondle and weave into dreamy socks and sweaters.
Eh...no problem...I can always mail order yarn. I'd miss the chickens. You can't mail order chickens...can you? (If you can, call me first. Have I got some deals for you!)
More field trip tomorrow.
