Mele Mei is a client of ours and the culminating event for the month long celebration of music is the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. When a certain person who shall not be named but could easily be Crystal Yamasaki (@crysmy) was attheverylastminute unable to help cover the event with my partner Melissa Chang (@meliss808) I was pressed into service.
My first response was “What am I going to wear?” Which however feminine of a response that may seem to be to those who keep track of that kind of stuff (not me of course since I’m always PC) if you follow me on any of the social media platforms you understand why I asked. I am “dress up averse” and am more than happy to pass that particular type of activity on to my business partner whether she likes it or not. That is what makes this partnership work because she knows that and puts up with it. Or maybe has grown to put up with it after all these years? That is my story and I’m sticking with it!
Besides it being a “dress up” event it also happened to fall on “date night”. For a number of years Melanie (@mel808) and I have been going out on the 24th of every month (at the very least) as date night. The 24th is the day of our wedding and thus why that particular day. But work is work and so what must be done must be done.
Luckily I was able to get a ticket for Mel and so she was able to attend the event and so we were able to keep our “date night”. Kinda. She spent the majority of the evening alone amongst strangers. Which I know some of you will say is probably the best kind of date night with me. Shaddap.
Muchos mahalos Mel! 143!
