Why are things always stuck together?

It happens all the time. You reach into the closet for a clothes hanger. Instead of one, you get a bunch stuck together. There they are, stuck on clothing or in a clump on the floor.

Then you go to the market. You take a shopping cart. But the cart is stuck to one or two other carts.

You might imagine that clothes hangers and shopping carts stick together as they do because they are mating.

Tired of Whiny Guests

Here on Maui, we are usually happy to have friends and relatives visit - until we meet them for lunch.

All we hear from them are complaints about the trip, such as: "They changed our seats." "They refused to put my stroller on the plane." "The food was awful." "The flight was late." "They lost our baggage."

We have to endure these stories because we think they are buying lunch. Instead, we get stuck with the check.

It seems people fly over here just to have us suffer listening to their tales of suffering.
