Heartwarming explosions...

Earlier tonight, I was driving home from HBoO's house when, suddenly, I saw a brilliant white light in the sky. This light was followed immediately by a loud bang, so my initial reaction was one of indescribable woe and anguish...

"Fuck. I'm dead. I died. I'm dead."

Fractions of a second later, the white light in the sky expanded and transformed into dozens of smaller red and green lights branching outward in a circular pattern away from the epicenter. This familiar combination of sound, color, and shape tickled my occipital lobe, telling me that I was not dead, but, instead, witnessing a fireworks display.

"Ooooohhhh!!! Aaaahhhhhh!!!"

I pulled over to the side of the road, now noticing that several other motorists had done the same and watched the tail end of the show, my eyes all lit up like a puppy in a window and my heart skipping a few beats...

I love fireworks..:-D
