I knew when she tried me on that she was never going to wear me. C’mon, a Kansas schoolteacher on vacation in Hawaii? She wasn’t buying a dress; she was buying a memory, a fantasy. She was buying the idea that this wasn’t going to be her only trip to Hawaii, that she would throw a tiki-themed party back home in Lawrence, that the handsome man at the bar would send her a drink, served in a pineapple. She was buying the idea of wearing a hibiscus flower in her hair. Me? I’ve never even been out of my box.
The special Kansas is shout-out for Lydia and Janet!
