Uh, no.

Last night, encouraged by the brush wars taking place all around, I lit a few fireworks. The first I lit while I was scrounging around in the garage, trying to find a piece of metal tubing which which I could repair my rocking chair. As I scrounged I came across a lighter, and I looked at the stack of mortars salvaged from the house Og was cleaning in December, and it was the work of a moment to get a shell and a mortar, and go out into the back yard and light it.

Later, while cooking dinner, I lit some firecrackers and tossed them into the back yard. And I lit some ground bloom flowers. And a single roman candle.

...not as extravagant as some years, but I didn't want to go nuts since Mrs. Fungus was still at work.

Oh, dick! Mrs. Fungus has declared a litter emergency. Apparently the cat box is smelly. I will go rectify this and return shortly.

This commercial break has been brought to you by Glint! (tm) Pet litter, exfoliant, and sugar substitute of the STARS!!!

But soon we shall repair hence to celebrate the founding of our once-great nation.
