I got lei'd in the shower this morning. Or, I wore my lei in the shower this morning. Whatever. It felt really odd to have this thing around my neck while I was trying to get clean. Like, I didn't want the lei to get too wet so I was dancing around the shower, repositioning the lei so it hung over my chest, then over my back, then over my chest again, etc. But it quickly came apparent that there was nothing I could do to stop the lei from getting wet.
The lei was wet for the next thirty minutes or so. It really knows how to retain water. Other than my shower experience, though, keeping the lei around my neck hasn't proven to be very difficult. I've been to Starbucks for breakfast, a diner for lunch, and then I went to an afternoon movie (An Inconvenient Truth, which I'll talk more about later, but you should go see it if you haven't) and I keep waiting for someone to be like, "what's with the oink lei?" (actually, I wait for them to say "what's with the pink lei," but sometimes typos are freaking brilliant) and even though I've had many conversations with strangers, no one has asked the million dollar question.
