The whole looking up, ooohhing and ahhhing and having to cover my ears thing just never really did it for me.
I know, I’m un-American, right. I mean, who DOESN’T like fireworks besides me and my dog, who freaks out from the noise? Oh, and most babies. Babies don’t like fireworks either. And, to be quite honest, I can’t blame them.
What I DO love, though, is having my friends and family over to celebrate. Actually, I just love having people over. We don’t even have to be celebrating anything.
We’ve been hosting a July 4th party for the last 8 year, minus one year because we went somewhere else. We figure we have a pool so we may as well use it.
Today is no different. Friends and family will come over. We’ll eat, drink and be merry. We’ll have fireworks in our front yard and I’ll stay in the house during, what I’m sure will be a very oooohh and ahhhh inspiring presentation (if you like the shit), because that’s usually when the mosquitos come about.
Happy Independence Day. Or July 4th. Whichever you may call it.
A day that’s completely lost what it’s true meaning is because it’s been replaced by BBQ’s, beer and fireworks.
Enjoy. Drink responsibly. Don’t text while driving. Especially when you’ve been drinking. Also, don’t watch the fireworks while driving because that’s pretty dangerous too.
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
