Here in Hawaii we always laugh at folks on the mainland who think that locals live in grass shacks and girls walk around in hula skirts. But driving through town I saw this gal in the hula outfit chatting with someone on the corner. No, it didn’t look like she was trying to promote something, she had a shopping bag in one hand. It just looked like an ordinary person stopping to chat with someone on the corner except for the outfit and when she was done chatting she walked down the sidewalk. So maybe part of the myth is true.
I haven’t seen too many grass shacks with residents living in them lately or bare butts with sand stuck on them at the beach lately either like those postcards they sell.
