To my British friends, neener neener, we won! (And, aren't you glad?)
And, to the rest of you, I hope you are having a nice summer day.
If you live in a part of the world where it is summer, that is.
(Can't forget the international nature of the Internet).
Today is my favorite holiday but it's a lot of work. I always have people over and even though I keep the menu simple, (hotdogs, grilled chicken, potato salad, watermelon, strawberry shortcake), it's true that cleaning the house, shopping, etc seems to take 100% of my energy, especially now as I am at my nadir and very tired.
But, tonight I will have some ice tea, eat a hotdog and a piece of chicken, and enjoy my family as they set off fireworks. Another warm summer evening spent exactly the way I like to.
I have often said that when I die, don't bury me. Cremate me and shoot me up in a firework on the 4th of July. I love this holiday, and it would be nice to have my memory come twinkling down to earth.
Although, with my luck?
That firework would be a dud.
