7/4 is one of my favorite days. I sincerely love it. I am a history buff and find great joy when I contemplate the sacrifices that were made for our freedom here in America. Thanks to all those who gave their lives to protect this great country.
But I hate fireworks. I just don’t get them. I was never really fascinated with them. Friends of mine had poppers and sparklers and anything else that was on fire and makes loud noises. But I didn’t get it. I didn’t see what all the fuss was about. I can understand the fascination that pyros have but come on normal people.
So here are 4 reasons why I never liked celebrating with fireworks:
- Its hot outside and I’m a Bunch (for those new to my life, here’s an equation: bunch = lots of sweat. You could also refer to us as sweaters. Not Cosby but sweat-ers.)
- I didn’t want to stand there hurting my neck looking up at something that is like 2 miles away.
- It also sucks because the sound never lines up with the light. It feels like a bad Japanese movie.
- The people oooing and ahhhing. Have these people never seen lights? Have they never turned on a TV or driven in traffic?
I thought about having 74 reasons why I hate fireworks on this post but decided to not be a pessimist. So here’s to our freedom. Let’s just come up with something better than fireworks to give thanks.
