The downside of Fourth of July BBQs: I’m feeling bloated today. But as horrible as I feel right now, it doesn’t compare to the joy I felt when I crushed Cathi and Ben in Scrabble yesterday. Okay, I didn’t really crush anyone or anything. There were some crafty moves involving the words “ajar” and “six.”
But the absolute highlight of the evening was setting off my first illegal firework. I was such a chickenshit pussy growing up, so I guess in my adulthood I’m trying to make up for it. So when the opportunity presented itself, I took the launching pad and thingee out to the middle of the street, lit the wick and ran like hell. Ka-bloomy!
So hamburgers, brats, potato salad, chips, fruit, Scrabble, The Jerk, Kill Bill Vol. 1 and illegal fireworks. Twas a good evening.
