Sunday night I caught several segments of an awards show.
It was the Golden Globes.
The purpose of the Golden Globes is to “recognize excellence in film and television, both foreign and domestic” (wikipedia).
The Golden Globes boils down to these three things:
- What people wear.
- Who wins the award.
- What they say on stage.
On the day after Christmas I entered a bravery contest.
I went to the mall.
It felt like a gladiator arena.
The place was crawling with people.
There were long lines, short tempers, and apparently deep pockets as people capitalized on the after Christmas sales.
Before all was said and done our family had spent 5 hours in the melee.
That’s right 5 hours.
A momentary respite came on a visit to the bookstore in the mall.
