careful who you ask to take your photo

I have a new friend that moved here not too long ago…her name is Jaime.…and she was a blog reader

who reached out to me when she and her family decided to uproot themselves to Kauai.

I love when people do things like that.

 try something different.

They found a place on the South side of the island….and so it’s hard getting together because

it’s a good hour and a half for either of us. This week one of Jamie’s friends was in town visiting….

who’s also a blog reader of mine….so we all decided to meet up for lunch.

We met at The Garden Cafe….at Common Ground. It’s in Kilauea….and if you follow me on Instagram…

you know that i eat here at least every other week.

They have the Kalua pork nachos.

{no words needed}

I’ll be doing a whole post on this place soon….i promise.


Anyhoo…..we were sitting there and i turned around to a group of girls…

high-schoolers i’m sure….

and i asked one of them to take our photo with my phone.

This is the first photo:

She took it and then said she should probably get on the other side of the table because

the photo just didn’t come out very well.

I thought…..good call….she’s probably a budding photographer….

and she knows all about catching the “right” angles.

I almost….and i mean ALMOST….

gave her the “two fingers up” i’ve read the Hunger Games sign…..

but i wasn’t having any wine with my lunch….because they don’t serve wine with lunch….

and because i didn’t have any wine…..i’m kind of glad i didn’t give her the “sign”.

This is the second photo she took:

and before i knew it she took another photo

{still thinking she was a budding photographer while she continued to manipulate my iphone}


the moral of the story is….

don’t ask girls who look like they should be in school at noon on a Friday but are not……

to take your photo.

The end.
