COUSINS

I just found this picture floating around on my computer.  It was taken in July of 2003, at my family reunion in Hawaii.  From left to right thats my cousin Kevin, my brother George, my wonderful Auntie Marion, myself, and my cousin Sharon.  My aunt and cousins lived right across the street from us and with us being so close in age we were always into mischief!  Kevin is the cousin (oh, I am going to be in sooooo much trouble for posting this) who came running over to borrow my book 'How To Regain Your Virginity' because he had a new girlfriend and he wanted her to think she was his first!  (he later married her and they are still happily married so I guess it worked!).  George, or Keoki, was my best friend.  It was him and Kev who dropped that VW on my legs while looking for frogs.  It was with him that I cut out of school to visit the Arizona Memorial for the first time... and we cried together on the shrine over the sunken deck as we realized that there were still bodies entombed on the ship.  And Sharon, well, I gave her a speical Hawaiian name which she used proudly for about a year before learning that the translation meant 'poop'.  I still call her 'Kukae' to this day.... Ahhhhh, yes, those were the days!

That was so sweet of your cousin to care about a girl enough to even want her to think that!
