I have been at two locations today which did not have coffee. I scowled about that on this post July 4th holiday where I believe that a lot of Americans have the day off from work. I work from home so there really isn’t ever a day off for me so when the coffee runs out, the only person I can give the evil eye to has to be in the mirror for proper evil eye staring.
It’s been a slow and leisurely weekend where last night’s festivities made me a bit stabby for a variety of reasons, one being that I don’t get fireworks exploded from home. A few years ago, a bottle rocket was set off at my father’s house and went sideways, going up the shorts of my sister leaving one of the nastiest burns I’ve ever seen. This was while her two children watched. I leave the fireworks to the professionals. However, I wasn’t with professionals last night who literally scared me to death with their fireworks hijinks.
I think they are pretty standing on the bridge off the Cumberland River or watching Riverfront Park, but in a corn field it just doesn’t do it for me. And this guy lost his arm this weekend so if you are going to continue the fireworks revelry, be smart about it. As for my sister’s scar from the bottle rocket, it’s still there. You just don’t know where these things are going.
To each his own.
Off to the races …
