Salmon metaphor

Petrol prices are soaring into a whole new stratosphere, they are getting so high, in fact, that a complimentary back massage should come with every refill at the pump. But things aren’t as bad as they seem on the surface. To the environmentally focused individual, at least in Australia, the inflated prices appear to be having a positive impact; that is they are forcing people to use public transport or, god forbid, employ those amazing appendages that mother nature gifted them with: their feet.

I’d love to write a few more posts and a whole lot more detail, but I’m so busy at the moment that I’m only able to summarize my thoughts, insights and observations.

But, like the salmon that swims upstream, battling exhaustion, starvation and grizzly bears‘ hungry maws, only to find a mate, cop a quick root, then die, mouth agape and eyes wide with idiotic surprise -- I’ll be back with the next season.

What an utterly weird metaphor.

Go on, admit it, you just liked the reference to rooting Salmon!

Thanks, though. :)
