One time in college my friends and I decided to have a Hawaiian-themed bock party. Being the young creatives that we were, we bumped things up a notch and made it a cross-dressing Hawaiian party where the guys would wear grass skirts and coconut bras and the girls would wear Hawaiian shirts.

My parents had excess tiki torches at home due to an outdoor design phase my mom was going through, so I took charge of that. Sandy took charge of buying leis so that everyone at the party could get lei’d (it seemed hilarious back then).

Something happened when Sandy ordered the leis. She meant to buy a couple of hundred, but ended up receiving a couple of thousand. She had no idea what a cheap lei was supposed to cost, but apparently they ended up being so cheap that she didn’t notice that she had ordered a much larger quantity.

The party was an instant smash. Pineapple, pig, and punch, everyone ate and drank (and drank, and drank) until they were intoxicated on either booze or food or good vibes. The handful of guys who actually showed up in grass skirts became kings of the party, and the police even cruised by without stopping their vehicle.

Even though everyone had gotten lei’d (with some people getting lei’d multiple times), we still had an enormous stack of cheap flowers that we had no idea what to do with. So in my drunken state I decide “Of course, I should be a Lei Monster.” It made sense at the time.

We covered every inch of me in the leftover leis, and I began roaming around the party shouting “Rawr, I am the Lei Monster,” because in my mind I felt a lei monster should roar and announce herself.

So if you happen to be online and see a lei monster doing a keg stand, it’s probably me.
