Sunday Scribbling: Slippery


The prompt for this week’s Sunday Scribbling is slippery. Too many things come to my mind when I hear the word slippery. One thing fun that I can share is our “wedding reception” which was highlighted by a Giant Slip and Slide. It’s slippery alright!

B and I were married in the Philippines. Only a few of his friends were able to come. Due to all the immigration hurdles we had to go through, it took me a year before I was able to come to Maui. Instead of doing another wedding on Maui, a grand reception was planned. It was held in a huge private park in Wailea. There was a nice size hill and our friends laid out a loooongggg white plastic like a carpet and a water hose. B and I were the first one to get down the giant water slide, on top of a boogie board, both of us wearing beautiful lei. Instead of walking down the aisle on a nice white carpet, we slip down the hill on a slippery slide!

I will post a photo later after I scan it (no digital camera back then). In the meantime, I posted the video above to show the kind of slip and slide we had :)

UPDATE: Here's the photo!

What fun! I always wanted a slip and slide when I was a kid, and I only remember getting to use one once or twice, so naturally, my kids have had them, and I join in the fun!
