Here's a substitute if you missed the "Running of the Bulls:" The Annual Christmas Shopping Bus Tour. The buses converge downtown from distant lands, like Debuke or Muncie, and include mostly “Christmas Sweater” women. If a man is on board, his role is to guard the purchases and pocketbooks. The Christmas Sweater Ladies chomp at the bit for the bus doors to open. Once disgorged, a wave of ugly Christmas Sweaters crash onto the pavement. The Christmas Sweater Ladies jockey for position and stampede through the streets and stores with wild abandonment. They come with a shopping strategy and leave exhausted and exhilarated. You'll wonder if you witnessed an alien encounter or a force of nature.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
