Ah, the ingenuity of the local island boy!
My brother, Charlie, has for some time now wanted to build an outdoors fish cleaning sink. He's been great about not burdening Mom or other family members with the burden of cleaning the abundant amounts of fish he catches.
But his good intentions cannot eliminate the often overwhelming AROMA DE LA MER, shall we say, that permeates the household and can seriously damper one's appetite. Besides, there's nothing like preparing for dinner and seeing fish guts in the kitchen sink.
So, true to the process of invention, the irritating grain of sand in Charlie's oyster shell catalyzed his creative juices to the point where he could no longer procrastinate. The idea that had been germinating in his mind for years finally came to fruition.
And here is the result.
Come on in, Charlie. I'll ask Andrea, the "local girl" barista at the International District Starbucks to make you a venti soy latte while you share your story with all of the Hawaiian Odysseus family.
Once again, folks, here's my favorite guest blogger, Charlie!
