. . . and Christmas Begins With a Vengeance

Are you a Black Friday shopper?  I am not.  There are parallels in my mind between the frenzied, scrambling shoppers on Black Friday and the participants in the running of the bulls competition in Pamplona.

Parking headaches.

Waiting for the stores to open.

Dodging the crowds.

The incessant holiday music.

Not liking what you see in the dressing room mirror.

Runaway deals.

Battle scars.

And the exhaustion when it's all over.

Disclaimer:  I have never been to Pamplona or the running of the bulls.  These images were taken from Google.  I have, however, been shopping on Black Friday, only without my camera.


  1. LOL. Very funny, and it seems like it would be an incredibly accurate comparison.
    Parking headaches is my favorite!

  2. I haven't been to the running of the bulls or shopping on Black Friday - but it does seem like an apt comparison! Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving!

  3. LOL. What a hilarious and original post. Especially love the one about the dressing room mirror.
