Leilani Chun buried her head under a pillow as the early morning sound of the mobile refuse collection truck thundered and whined in her ears. Although it was ten floors down, she never could get used to it, Her husband, John, was already up and grumbling as he went out to get the paper and milk and water bottles. She would have to watch the amount of water she used for cooking this week as their last billing had shown a penalty for exceeding their quota. As usual, it seemed too early to get up.
Later, out in the kitchen, she glanced out her window as her neighbor watered her window planter. She always managed to get the Chun's window wet in the process, in spite of the ten foot distance between them. The few plants, stunted by air pollution, didn't seem worth it to Leilani. She shouldn't complain. The Chun's had been fortunate to be able to move into this new development in Kailua on the site of the Kawainui Swamp. It had served as a dump until it had been closed in 1978.
John was certainly in a bad mood. He complained about his breakfast of Brazilian seaweed cake, miracle rice, and fish meal milk (new from the United States of Europe). Leilani knew he missed his cigarettes, banned by the federal government. John reminded her to keep the food budget down to $75.00 this week as they were saving toward a license to have a second child.
Keoni bounced into the room as his father opened the Advertiser. "Can we go to the Kamehameha Day Parade tomorrow?" he queried. "No, you have an appointment with your computer down at the teaching center. You know you must be ready for the Preschool Scholastic Aptitude Tests. Don't you want to go to Kailua Intermediate? Besides, there might be more demonstrations for tax exemptions for dependents. It turned into a riot yesterday, and many people were hurt before the police could regain control." John hid behind his newspaper.
Leilani returned from making the beds, "Better not stick around too long. I just heard a radio report that there's a pile-up in the Pali Tunnel, It's six now, and you'll never make it down to the Waimanalo Tunnel in time unless you hurry!
