Fireworks - The Devil's Noisemakers

"You stupid kids and your stupid firecrackers!! Don't you know some of us have to work in the morning?!"

That's what I yelled from my front porch at 10:30PM last night.

I have officially reached crotchety old lady status.

Hope everyone had a wonderful, sparkler-filled 4th of July.


  1. I almost yelled at a middle-age woman who lives across the street from me who set off fireworks in our street at midnight last night. I really wanted to yell at her "You couldn't have done that earlier, while everyone else was doing it? Like around 10 or so? There are kids on this street who need their sleep, plus my next-door neighbors have a newborn and you might have just robbed them of some precious sleep or relaxation! And it's so late that a lot of adults are asleep by now. Obviously you have no respect for others..." But I didn't. Because I'm a wuss. But I mean, really. It's bad enough that people are setting off fireworks for three days BEFORE July 4th, as well as 3 days AFTER. Do they really need to do it at such a late hour? I guess I'm a crotchety old lady, too. COLs, unite!

  2. You reaaally yelled that! Wow. Now that is just...impressive. Truly, I'm in awe.
