As you watch beautiful fireworks soar and sail through the air tonight, please remember to keep it safe. If you’re going to set off firecrackers or sparklers or whatever else, do it SOBER. That means, DO NOT DRINK, THEN SET OFF SMALL EXPLOSIVES. Emergency rooms across the country are filled the next day with morons who lost fingers or worse because they thought drinking a whole case of beer, then lighting fireworks someone was holding between their teeth, was a good idea. Don’t be that person. Enjoy the Fourth of July festivities wisely, so you can enjoy them again next year, and the year after that, and so on and so forth.
My dad’s grilling for lunch, and my sister and I are going to watch our town’s local fireworks display later this evening. All in all, it’s going to be a marvelous day.
