Dude and Dude: Boll-ivia


“You say somethin’, dude?”

“Only at the top of my lungs, dude. What’s the matter with you?”

“Just a few thousand bombs bursting in air, dude. Things have been kinda peaceful ever since, y’know?”

“Dude, you don’t need no fireworks to play the ‘I can’t hear you’ game. Next time, try this.”

Cotton, dude? And what’re you doing to it?”

Raw cotton, dude. For your ears. So I can pull it out when I’m talkin’ to you, and you won’t have no excuses. As for what I’m doing, I’m ginning the seeds out of it. And I’m gonna plant them everyplace I can reach.”

“That’s a lot of work, dude.”

“It’ll be worth it, dude. Conditions on Hawai‘i are perfect for growing cotton. Especially after all the fireworks these past few days. There won’t be a weevil spirit anyplace …”

    Well I didn’t think it was all that bad really. Just par for the course on New Years Eve. So those weevils were what I saw running down Kuliouou huh? LOL

    • Amoeba says:

      Oh, Thom, so that was you standing on the streetcorner dealing in earplugs and asthma inhalers, was it? Yeah, those weevils ran right down the street and onto the airport, where they joined the UH professors on the earliest available departing flights.

    I wonder if cotton will grow in Ohio…..

    • Amoeba says:

      It will, Kat, though only in southern Ohio, I reckon, is the growing season long enough to secure a good crop. Right now, though, corn and soybeans are more profitable.

  9. I’m glad you survived it all. You’re giving me flashbacks of living in Belfast however. I wonder what sort of New Year’s celebrations go down in Friday Harbor?

    It’s been so long since I lived in a city, I forget about New Year’s fireworks at midnight. I’m pretty sure at this point, I’d shoot back.
