I love fireworks. The noise, the colors, the crowds. It’s like a rock concert but without the moshing (do people still mosh?)
The last time I went, I looked like this:
And I haven’t been back since it turns out fireworks in the summer are two hours past my kid’s bedtime and if your kids slept like my kids, you’d never screw up bedtime on purpose.
So Fourth of July is going to be just another day.
And my patriotic self is not happy about that. The fireworks and cannons and music make it a day of triumph and excitement. THE BRITISH CAN SUCK IT. Or something like that.
But we just got back from vacation so I don’t really want to do anything intense.
I Ask: How can I make the Fourth of July memorable and be in bed before the fireworks?
