dot-to-dots

Life is like a dot-to-dot. Monumental moments, the ones that fill the pages of the baby book, the ones that send the grandmas scurrying for their cameras, are connected together by the mundane, day to day of everything else. You know what I'm talking about--graduation day, bringing home a blue ribbon, the first car, the first kiss (okay-try to keep this checkable). The first paycheck, the first time you successfully distinguish between left and right...you get the idea.

Last night, I knew a monumental moment. I experienced my very first Oahu Frappe. It was a moment I had long awaited, and I was not disappointed. Let me just say--the descriptions I had heard contained no exaggeration. And today, my life feels a little more complete.

Congrats on ya first Oahu Frappe- whatever that is. It is always a blessing to accomplish something we've always wanted to do or something we would like to do. So, congrats!!!

Ah, how to describe Oahu to the inexperienced!

I'm curious that you put "first kiss" in that list. Is there something you want to tell me? :)

Truly the sun shines brighter
grass is greener
and water tastes duller
after the first taste of Oahu.
Congratulations on taking the first step to enlightenment.

I feel like I'm missing something in my life that I never knew about. Like I'm standing on the outside of some elite membership that is crucial to a complete life experience. I must search out this mysterious Oahu Frappe. I shan't rest till I have sensed this joy you describe. ;)

Oh, I wish I had checked your blog a couple weeks ago. Truly, there is no greater joy than to have Oahu Frappe. You have been properly initiated.
