I loved the 4th of July!
Every year, we’d buy a smallish bunch of firecrackers, smoke bombs, bottle rockets, fountains, snakes and one Roman candle.
And every year, my Dad, the Fireman, or Fire Marshall, would give The Speech.
Thou shalt not:
- Throw lit firecrackers like hand grenades
- Shoot bottle rockets at Steve or any other living creature
- Hold a Roman candle in your hand. Never. Ever. Not even once.
At this point, you’re expecting me to tell a story about how Steve and I had bottle rocket duels at dawn and shot out each other’s eyeballs.
No, that’s a different story.
This story involves starting a raging fire in my back yard…
