Here's an interesting story related to this... Many years ago, I walked into an art gallery (in Antigua, of all places). There were some good pictures, but what caught my eye was some Star Wars related prints. One had a silhouette of Yoda, with a really fancy X-wing, flying towards a planet, with a sailboat!!

The gallery was pretty empty, so I struck up a conversation (with the artist, but I didn't know it at the time). Once I said that the picture was cool, he told me he was the artist and told me the story... He was one of the artist who made the Yoda models for Empire Strikes Back. Tons of details about the models, and the people behind the movie. Details about how he used to live in the "fast lane"... but eventually, decided to give it up to retire in the Carribean, and go sailing.

Anyway...

Me: "Okay. I'll buy a print."
Artist: "Thanks. You won't be disappointed. It will definitely go up in value."
Me: "No. I am buying it for that story."

After seeing the picture, I was reminded of the story about the two monks and the mermaid.

While we were waiting for the wedding to start, my best man noticed that the seam in his trousers had a big rip in it. So I ran across the street to borrow my mother's serger, so we could stitch up the seam. But when I ran back with the serger, this UPS truck swerved to miss me and went down an embankment into the park.

I'm very impressed that you knew that that was a serger.
