Who Doesn't Love Fireworks?

We just celebrated the 4th of July, the highlight of the holiday is fireworks. Don't get me wrong, I love the big fancy professional displays but I much prefer putting on my own show.

When I was young, my parents wouldn't let me have fireworks. I think that led to my misuse of them when I got older. I remember a kid on my block always had them. His parents didn't care. We would dry to blow things up. Our go-to was old toys. One time we put some firecrackers in a mailbox. The thing was destroyed. It freaked us out so much we didn't repeat the stunt.
