You know you live in Hawaii when…
It’s warm enough to swim in the ocean every single day. (But beware: by the third year your blood has thinned and you don’t think that anymore…in the same way you look for a jacket if it dips below 70 degrees).
You know what Saimin, Shoyu and go-aheads are (noodle dish, soy sauce and rubbah slippahs).
You have never seen so many feral cats in your life.
It seems that every single dog up for adoption at the Humane Society is a Pitbull.
About the time you get really attached to a new restaurant, it’s already out of business.
Chickens live at the beach.
It’s too hot to turn the oven on to make a turkey on Thanksgiving, so you dig an imu pit in the backyard.
There’s a cockroach floating in the chicken soup you’re making…and you only turned your back for a second!
You know what apple bananas are. And now you won’t eat the other kind.
Your turn…what says “Hawaii” to you? Please share!
