Let me try to explain to you where I live. I live here in Kailua...but right near Lanikai...and there is only one exit to leave my place...one. I know, kind of scary when you think about it...especially if that one exit is a bridge over an ocean canal thingy...so if it floods...the bridge floods and no more way to get out from where I am. So, yes, I do take tsunami warnings and flood warnings seriously...I have to go somewhere higher up so that I won't be stranded. So, when I woke up to the water flowing from the sky, I thought that I wasn't going to be able to go to school. But alas, I was wrong and driving to school was a tricky obstacle course...because it wasn't flooded per say...but there were HUGE DEEP "PUDDLES" that my little tiny trekker had to go through...and there were crazy people who still got up and was running...so of course I couldn't just fly through the puddle, no I had to go snail mode through those buggers so I wouldn't have to be labeled the "jerk driver" for splashing everyone! *laughs* The hard part was everyone was doing it so it was pretty slow going...but I got to school.
...and I swear my lil keikis were spoon fed sugar before coming into school! They were bouncing off the walls, dancing all over the place, screaming and yelling who knows what...it was a mad house! And all this, but we couldn't even go outside to try to release some of their pent up energy! Shoots! I was going insane myself from the trapped feeling of staying inside all day! All in all, this day was a pretty...crazy? fun? draining? Well...all of the above.
Another Anuhea song, "Higher Than the Clouds" ....Island music can always relax me!
