A Putrid Pattern: Vuvuzela and Bouquet Pummelings

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.

Vuvuzela in face
Aargh, the loudness of being Vuvuzela-ed! And by a top travel blogger in a “Cat in the Hat” headpiece, no less!

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.

Beating with bouquet
Ooh, the pain of being pummeled with flowers! And at a tranquil seaside wedding no less.

Given these two pieces of evidence, do YOU see a pattern emerging? I certainly do. Harumph! Stop Vuvuzela and flower violence today!

Why did your friend do that? >.< You got two good scares in a month and that's "healthy". I scare my parents by hiding near the clothes rack so every single time they walk to the bedrooms or bathroom, they get mini heart attacks. :) It's so fun!
