Sticky Bombs

Watch where you step! South Maui has once again become a minefield beneath Monkey pod trees. Every year these large, majestic shade trees drop bazillions of foot-long seed pods which, when crushed, exude an oily sap that adheres to everything. In a couple of weeks the roads will look and sound as if they had been sprayed with tar, and I will be walking inches taller from the residue on the bottom of my shoes. It could be worse, imagine them dropping tons of bananas instead.
