I shall be brief, to-the-point, and righteously indignant. Here are the facts.
During the TBEX World Travel Blogger Conference last month, I was Vuvuzela-ed in the face. This is to say, I was brutally accosted by a Vuvuzela-wielding top travel blogger (pictured below). The experience was very loud. I still somewhat hear the (South African?) sea in one ear from the instrumental trauma.
That is fact one.
Fact two: This evening I was innocently attending a seaside wedding in Rhode Island when, all of a sudden, I was pummeled with a bouquet of bright blue flowers! Ooh, the indignity! Ooh, the pollen overload! It was a fiasco.
Given these two pieces of evidence, do YOU see a pattern emerging? I certainly do. Harumph! Stop Vuvuzela and flower violence today!
