Liking Trudy’s Photos

It’s been eight months since we went to Hawaiʻi. But the story isn’t completely told. I still have scribbled notes in this Moleskine. So forgive me, but it’s winter and, well, I’ve got these notes, so I’d like to pick up where we left off, on the Big Island…

We’re in the hotel room. The surf is washing up on the beach outside our window. I just took a hot shower, and oh how wonderful it is to no longer be sore from our hikes in Kauaʻi. The fair and industrious┬áTrudy is trying to figure out why a picture she posted to Facebook didn’t appear.

We go to the (free!) breakfast downstairs at the breakfast buffet. The reviews dissed this spread!? It entirely meets with our approval (om nom nom).

Now we’re back in the hotel room again. We’re supposed to be gathering our snorkel gear and heading out, but Trudy walks straight over to her computer.

“Whatcha doin’, Trudy?”

She brings up Facebook.

“Oh oh,” she says. “Steve can’t see the photos. I need to change some settings…”

I go to brush my teeth. When I come back out, Trudy proclaims, “Linda likes my photos!”

It’s only been ten seconds since she changed her Facebook settings, and people are liking her photos. She has a proud smile on her face.
