For the last hour and a half I have had to endure a constant barrage of fireworks from both east, west, and south. Nothing to the north. Anyone else hearing this?
I don't really like the sound of fireworks. Maybe I'm not a kid anymore. I guess I liked them as a kid although we didn't have them around home (dad believed in sparklers, and no missing fingers). We had a couple of guys that worked at the Main Post Office. One had tried to make a giant fireworks, and blew his hand off. The other was mixing some reactive chemicals together, and lost both hands in the resulting explosion.
Maybe the cops came to put a stop to it, though I didn't hear any sirens. Maybe they ran out of fireworks (probably spent the last of their welfare check on it). Didn't hear any loud bang, just the usually staccato of close together explosives (or gunshots). So maybe no one will be paying a visit to the emergency room tonight (dammit)!
