Hail The Fourth!

I had a roommate once who was afraid of fireworks.

Apparently she had witnessed a ghastly accident in which a young child had been horrible maimed by fireworks, and so whenever fireworks were on display in the city, she hid in her room with the door closed and (presumably) her headphones on.

Every year, there are fireworks accidents.

This year, please make sure that you do not suffer one of them, by reading the instructions and following them when lighting small fireworks and by staying the heck away with big fireworks.

Also, please don’t drink and drive.

Common-sense things, but again, every year… well, anyway, Happy Fourth of July!
