I’ve never been to Hawaii, but over the past few years I’ve become more and more intrigued with visiting the 50th state. What’s peaked my interest, you ask? Well, here are the top 5 reasons:
5. I kinda like that crazy University of Hawaii mascot, Vili The Warrior
Even though he offended University of Houston and UTEP fans and violated the Alabama elephant when he stuck his elephant trunk up his bum and violently threw the 165-lb Bama student dressed as Big Al across the field, I still kinda like ole Vili.
4. I want to see Doris Duke’s Hawaii estate Shangri La
I know, I just said the word ‘Duke’ and basketball season has already started. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. But I am fascinated by Doris Duke’s Hawaiian estate (now a museum open to the public) and I would love to see it in person. Go Heels.
3. Little Chick and I already own grass skirts and Hawaiian shirt koozies
For some reason we decided to throw a Luau a few years ago on January 2nd. It snowed. I bought a grass skirt on the Internet and paid a premium to have it shipped two-day air in time for the party. Surprisingly, I haven’t had another occasion to wear it and would really like to get my money’s worth outta that thing.
2. The Divine Miss M
Bette Midler was born in Hawaii and I love her version of this song
