It sounds like Baghdad outside of my house right now...

Why wait for the 4th of July when you get start shooting off fireworks at 11:30 the night before,right?? I am waiting for a roman candle to come shooting through my window any second now and put me out of my misery.

I can't really complain though. Twenty years ago i would have been doing the exact same thing. It's what kids do. And I can't even knock the parents. I had amazing parents,, but we were still SO stupid. I remember getting in bottle rocket fights EVERY year with kids from the neighborhood. How smart were we? "Hey, you know what sounds like fun? Shooting scaled down missles at each other...sweet!"

It's not really as dangerous as it sounds, I mean have you ever shot a bottle rocket? Those things don't have the most sophisticated guidance systems built into them. In fact, in all of my years of playing I think I was the only one EVER actually hit. It hurt. But I wore it like a badge of honor...I was known strictly as 'the kid who survived the bottle rocket shot to the leg' for like three years! I thought maybe the chicks would dig a guy with a combat wound. I was wrong.
