Getting Lei'd

by david daly on 11/07/11

Ever since the Brady Bunch took a family trip to Hawaii I have been looking forward to the day when I arrive at Honolulu airport and am presented with a tropical flower lei and a welcoming aloha.  Well, I hope you are all sitting down… apparently this only happens on TV.  I just landed in Honolulu on a Continental flight from Houston and spent the entire taxi time to the gate practicing my lei acceptance.  As I emerged from the jetway, I looked for the procession of welcome leis and to my dismay it was nowhere to be found.  I’m ok with airlines cutting meals, peanuts, free booze and even charging for checked bags, but I never thought they’d take away my lei.  To console myself, I found the arrival episode of the legendary Brady Bunch Hawaii saga and if you fast forward to 4:00 minutes into the episode, you can relive the lei ceremony that now exists only in my imagination:
