Metaphors for life

A recent poll asked participants to pick the metaphor that best describes their life:

51%  a journey
11%  a battle
10%  the seasons
 8%   a novel
 6%   a race
 5%   a live performance, like a play
 4%   a carousel
 2%   other
 2%   unsure
Yep, Gilgamesh and the Odyssey rule.

My life is a quick trip to the grocery store, where I end up with a bunch of great stuff, but once I get home, I realize I forgot the one thing I went in for.
