R.I.P. Polyester Pants

Our family survived the holiday without injury. Yeah!

I always get so nervous about those crazy fireworks. I wish I didn't. It takes away a lot of the 'Oooh' and 'Ahhh' enjoyment. Instead it's more like 'Hey! Don't point that at people!' Or 'You're too close! Get away from there!' Ugh.

I remember when I was younger and I couldn't wait to get sparklers. I loved to write my name to create my own neon sign or throw them in the air for my own fireworks display.

One year a sparkler went a little crazy in my hand and sparked too much. It burnt holes in my precious navy blue polyester pants. Ye-e-e-ouch! That did it for me. No more sparklers after that. (And considering I was wearing polyester pants, maybe the sparklers did me a favor? ;-> )


***Update***

My daughter's best friends father is returning home from the Hospital today.

Thank you for your well wishes and prayers.

It's going to be a long road.

  5. I freak out about fireworks being done by individuals. I expect the neighbors to catch my house on fire every year. They aim them right at our house it seems.

    And the polyester pants...I'm glad that happened.

  6. I don't like fireworks either, unless I'm watching them from a distance. Poor polyester pants!

  7. It is amazing how much more stressful things are as you get older. We always drove out on the ice as kids to watch the winter fireworks, now the thought makes me sick.

  11. Oh man! The only time I recall actually wearing polyester pants was at my first job when I was sixteen- a grocery store. Luckily, they changed the dress code shortly after I started. I agree with the others' comments about the pants, maybe it was a sign.

  12. I am so glad your friend is returning home from the hospital.
    I've done the neighborhood fireworks before. It isn't the same as spreading out a quilt, lying down & enjoying the show. But, to me, it does seem to make for better memories.
