I didn’t plan on it but as I went out to lunch today I remembered that tonight is New Years. I figured, why not go get some fireworks. For the last few years on the 4th and New Years I’ve been popping a few old fireworks from my stash. Usually some Jumping Jacks and plain firecrackers. That’s all that’s left.
This year, since I’m feeling pretty good psychologically, I decided to get a few and have a little fun. I didn’t get a lot. About $25 worth. Enough to experience the awesomeness of fireworks. The smell takes me back to my childhood days when my pyromaniac friend and I shot fireworks ’till we dropped. Oh, the memories… I was happy back then. I had friends and family. It was the best.
Fireworks are illegal in the city limits but shooting fireworks is like breathing air. You HAVE to do it or the holiday is pointless.
