A Phantom 4th
Happy 4th everyone! Hope you enjoyed your barbecue, the beach, or my personal favorite fireworks. Sadly its back to work after the long weekend and after the yard is littered with leftovers from what looks like an exploded piñata. Of course watching the spectacle some of the chinese-imported glossy tube fireworks is well worth the cleanup required afterwords. Living in the state of Massachusetts of course means that fireworks are prohibited and not sold.
However, it really is convenient to live next to states that do allow them. I myself didn’t purchase the color assorted cases of a pyromaniacs fantasy, but chipped in some cash for my friends to take the drive and pick up the cases. Phantom Fireworks is so interesting in the fact that it is by all means a grocery store, but instead of the shelves stocked with store brand food products, its filled with different shapes and sizes of fireworks that always seem to be a little too stingy with the fuse.
I’m not sure why but this reminded me of the Family Guy episode where Peter is trapped without a passport and goes to find the “black market”. As a joke the black market is a grocery store where the shelves are filled with fake IDs and guns. The show jokes about this sort of thing but is it really too far off to think that guns could be sold in a grocery store when explosives are?
Anyway I definitely recommend Phantom Fireworks for the avid lover of fireworks and the passive participant who is happy with the simple sparkler and pop rocks.
