We spent the 4th of July eating raw tuna, hot dogs, BBQ ribs, teriyaki chicken, jello jigglers, 100 different kinds of weird salads, cheap beer, expensive beer, and something cheesy and lighting the sky in a several-hour-long competition for the most bad-ass firemasters… My uncle owns a classic farmhouse well north of Seattle, one of the original farms in the area, and we congregated there for a night of explosions and camping. Taking one look at the massive pile of fireworks in the yard, my brother said skeptically, “Are we really going to set ALL of those off?”
Little did he know…
One of the amateur rocketmen told me, while listening to whistles and pops and booms and bangs all around us, “Sounds like Vietnam!” He then grinned at me, lopsidedly. “And I would know… I was there!”
