Ah yes. The fourth of July. A day to set aside, for Americans to celebrate the day that we became our own nation. We banned together with one common goal. Push the British out so that we could live under our own rule. The premise itself is one of good intention and I know that there a few people that celebrate for the original reasons as to why it started in the first place.
I admit, this is very pretty. But that is not what the schmuck down the street is displaying.
Now, I must admit, I am not a big fan. I am thankful for soldiers that lost their lives over the years and the soldiers that fought and came stateside unharmed. It's everything else that comes along with it. First and foremost, I cannot stand the constant launching of fireworks, that seem to start in April, but do not cease until sometime in September. I'm sorry, but if after July fifth, your still shooting bottle rockets into the night sky and chugging beers with your buddies, I need to tell you something. YOU ARE BEING FRIGGING ANNOYING, dig? There are days that are set aside for you to blow your load, and to do so legally. There are even extra law enforcement, fire departments and e.m.t.'s on the ready, so when Billy forgets to let go of the M-80 before it explodes, they are more likely to get there to save Billy's life. But after the fourth, your kind of on your own. Every year, it happens. Some meat head consumes one too many Zima's and explodes a firework in his hand, or even worse, hits a buddy in the ass, causing third degree burns. "But it sure was a hoot." And, after that, they will likely file a lawsuit against the manufacturer because the packaging did not say "do not shoot friend in ass."
MY BAD, I JUST ASS-U-MED THAT IT WAS IMPLIED
The second thing that bothers me is the amount of money people put into this crap. If you have the dough, cool by me. But there are those that spend a paycheck because they want to be cool and out duel the neighbor. It just makes little sense to me.
O.k. The head transplant went very well. It was a tough decision though, having already done it once in the past. The doctors said that in time, the coloring of the new new body will eventually lighten on it's own. I do have the option to get it spray painted but, I have tempted fate too many times now. Two head transplants is enough. I will, however, miss playing with my own boobs.
