Mimi takes a vacation - Lost

March 16th, 2007

I got a text message from Mimi this morning that she was on-board Oceanic Flight 815 headed towards LAX. Funny… because I thought she was going on a UPS fligt. Very Odd. She was to have landed hours ago, but got word the plane never arrived. Just as I’m about to go into a full blown panic attact - I get an email…

Hello Mum!

Crazy, crazy day. I’m leaving Sydney for Los Angeles, when all of a sudden I’m grabbed off the UPS truck and shoved into the trunk of a car. I immediately thought I was being kidnapped by quilty gang bangers, when all of sudden there’s a big commotion and lot of arguing. Next thing I know… I’m headed on to a plane, but not a UPS plane. I’m on a fancy plane (Oceanic Airlines), seats and all. Not in cargo either! And there’s even a movie playing. And food and snacks and drinks oh my.

BANG - POP - SNAP - KABOOM - RIP - SMASH - PLOP - SIZZLE… next thing I know - I’m on a beach. My Box all busted and torn. I don’t know what happened, but there I was. On a beach. There were other people on the beach too. Everyone looked lost and confused.

I met this nice guy named Hugo. Oh and Mum… he even had that Izro hair just like you! I just KNEW he’d take good care of me. Anyhoo… Hugo said he’d help me find my way back to you. Hugo took me for many miles through a jungle and found me a secret way to get off this island. I’m not supposed to say how I got off the island, but I’ll tell you in private when I get home to you.

I couldn’t go straight from the island to the US mainland… I had a little stop-over in Honolulu. I know you lived here for many years and wanted to spend a little time in the place you love so much. I ate at all the places you loved so much… Ted’s Bakery, Masa’s, Kam Bowl for the onolicious Oxtail soup, malasadas, fried poi-mochi, spam musubi (DB’s will be so jealous) and even went to Micky D’s and had a Sprunch. I thought I’d give my try at surfing… and look Ma - no hands! Well… since I don’t have hands, I guess it’s no big deal. I’m getting closer and closer to home. I can’t wait to be in your arms, though I’ve become so fond of traveling. Do you think when I get home you’ll let me do occasional weekend travel trips?

Aloha nui loa,
