I guess it's a cultural thing, Flo. I'm with you. And, I've never understood the whole "running of the bulls" thing either.
Usually one or more of the spectators ends up getting gored in that thing. I've been to the rodeo where they stick money on the horns and people from the audience sign releases to get in the ring to try to get the bill off his horns. I think that's crazy! That bull better have a gold bullion on his horn before I get in there.
One time, at a rodeo, they were doing this and of course people were getting run over by the bull, and all of a sudden, this young guy in front of my sister and I stands up and shouts, "This is crazy!"
He was quite distressed by the whole thing.
My sister and I looked at him then looked at each other and burst out laughing. It was just so unusual to see such a reaction from such a young person (especially a guy
) when normally you see guys egg'n their friends on to actually do
stupid stuff like that. There were women out there too. Sometimes, stupid goes both ways!
