Hidden Dangers of Hawaii

There are many things to be wary of in Hawaii. We've been warned. All is not paradise.

Don't dress like you have money. Don't turn your back on your drink. You could be drugged and mugged.

Be mindful of the ocean. Even the most tranquil waters can have an undertow that can whisk you out to sea.

Keep vinegar with you when you go to the beach to treat jellyfish stings. Jellyfish are most prevalent for the first ten days after a full moon.

Stay out of murky water. Sharks love murky water because they are basically cowards who like to sneak up on their prey.

But the most hideous, the most loathsome Hawaiian menace - no one even warned us about.........

.................Hawaiian shaved ice.

This horrible menace masquerades as an innocent child's treat.

It's under the guise of a friendly little snow cone that it catches your child's eye.

But this green monster is not your friend.

The fact that it is the size of your child's head should be your first cause for alarm.

But here is the most important thing, the warning that no one gave to me.......

Do NOT wear white.
