Aloha mai kākou e nā hoa heluhelu. ʻO Laiana nō paha kēia e hoʻolaha aku nei i kēia manaʻo, ʻaʻole paha. Pehea ana lā ʻoukou e ʻike ai? Ua hōʻike ʻia aʻela kona inoa ma hope o ka huaʻōlelo “na” ma luna aʻe nei, a kainō ʻo ia ʻiʻo nō ka mea nāna kēia ʻatikala i kākau. Eia naʻe, ʻaʻole ʻoukou i ʻike maka i ke kanaka nona kēia mau manaʻo, a nāna hoʻi ia e kākau nei. Na ka hilinaʻi wale nō i ka ʻoiaʻiʻo o ia inoa e alakaʻi i ka noʻonoʻo ʻana ʻo Laiana nō kā ia e kākau nei.

I kēia au a kākou e noho nei, he mea nui ka mālama ʻana i kekahi kāleka hōʻoia kanaka, i mea e hōʻoia ai i ua kanaka nei, ʻo ia nō ia. He au hou kēia. Aia nō i ka nuʻa nā kānaka. A no laila, ʻaʻole i kamaʻāina nā mea a pau o ke kaiāulu e like me ka wā ma mua. Ke hele au i Costco ma Iwilei, paʻapū mau ia wahi, a kākaʻikahi ʻiʻo hoʻi koʻu hālāwai ʻana me kekahi hoa kamaʻāina. Ua hele nō a malihini au i koʻu ʻāina hānau! A inā e manaʻo au e kūʻai i kekahi mea a uku hoʻi me kekahi pila kīkoʻo a kāleka kāki paha, ʻaʻole e nele koʻu koi ʻia e hōʻoiaʻiʻo ē ʻo au nō kā ia e uku nei. Aloha nō ia mau lā i hala akula. He kamaʻāina nō ke kamaʻāina!

Aia ma ka ʻaoʻao ʻEwa o Costco, ma ke alanui ʻo Alakawa, ke keʻena aupuni kahi e kiʻi ai i ke kāleka hōʻoia kanaka. Ma laila māua ʻo koʻu kaikaina i hele ai i kēlā pule aku nei no ka hoʻōla hou ʻana i ko ia ala kāleka, a he mau lā wale nō ia ma mua o ka palena. Aloha nō kahi keiki ʻo au. Ua ʻike ʻole i nā lula. I ko māua hele mua ʻana, ʻaʻole nā palapala a pau e pono ai. Auē! ʻO ka hoʻi nele ia i ka hale. Hoʻokahi wale nō pōmaikaʻi o ia hoʻohoka ʻana. Ua pale ʻia ko māua komo loa ʻana ma loko o ia keʻena a me ke kū ʻana hoʻi i ka laina loloa no 2 a 3 paha hola, a oki loa ka hoka.

ʻImi akula māua i nā palapala a pau i koi ʻia, ʻo ka palapala hānau, ka palapala helu ola, a me ʻelua palapala e hōʻike ana i ko ia ala helu wahi. A paʻa ia mau mea, hele hou akula māua i ke keʻena i ka P2 nei. Ma hope o ke kū ʻana ma ka laina loloa, ua hiki aku māua i ka pukaaniani, kahi e kamaʻilio ai me ka limahana. I nānā mai ka hana o ua limahana nei i nā palapala a pau, ʻōlelo maila ʻo ia he hoʻokahi wale nō palapala e hōʻike ana i ka helu wahi o ka hale a koʻu kaikaina e noho ana, a nui nā palapala e hōʻike ana i koʻu helu wahi. No laila, ʻaʻole e hōʻike ʻia ko ia ala helu wahi ma luna o ke kāleka.

Noi akula au e nānā hou ʻo ia i nā leka i hoʻouna ʻia mai iā ia ma o koʻu helu wahi. ʻO kona hoʻi akula nō ia i kahi lumi ma hope o kona pukaaniani, kahi e kamaʻilio ai me kona luna. ʻAʻole nō a he wā, hoʻi maila ʻo ia me ka hōʻike ʻana mai ua hiki ke hoʻohana ʻia ke kāleka hōʻoia kanaka kahiko i mea e hōʻoia ai i ka helu wahi o koʻu kaikaina, ʻoiai ʻaʻole i pau ka pono o ia kaleka. He akamai hoʻi kau! ʻO ke kāleka hōʻoia kanaka kahiko i hoʻohana ʻia no 6 makahiki no ka hōʻoia ʻana i koʻu kaikaina, nāna nō i hōʻoia mai i koʻu kaikaina, ʻo ia nō koʻu kaikaina!
