This is what I overheard the other day
the man seated behind me
Antonio ! Quien torea mañana? (whos' bullfighting tomorrow?) (it is the feria right now in Granada and a lot of bullfightings are programmed)
Ah..pues no lo sé...no soy mucho de corridas...a mi me gusta mas los caballos !
(oh well I don't know...I'm not very much interested into corridas....I like horses better!)
(me thinking : Gosh me too...I much prefer horses)
and then an animated conversation started between the woman seated opposite me, the woman behind me, the man seated behind me and Antonio about bullfighter Aparicio who suffered from terrible injuries during his last bullfighting in Madrid last month. I've decided not to post a picture of his accident because it will be too shocking for you, my dear readers. I myself couldn't look at it. During one his pasos, Aparicio lost his balance and the bull took advantage to stick its horn into the bullfighter's throat very very deeply, until it came out his mouth.... Ouch....ouch...well after all, you'll tell me these are the risks of the trade.You already know where I stand regarding bullfighting. I'm firmly against it. I don't want to hear anything about its underlying philosophy of fighting one's own fear...sorry but I feel it's totally bull.shit (please pardon my English)....So here's to you Antonio.... let's keep the bulls at peace !
