Happy fourth, everyone!
I may be one of the few people out there that will tell you - the older I get, the more and more I dislike the Fourth of July.
Don't get me wrong - I love the reason we celebrate (hello, independence) but my tolerance for fireworks is fading fast.
Unlike my little sister (who I swear came out of the womb hating the sound of fireworks and thunder), I use to really enjoy lighting off and watching fireworks. Now, I don't know if I just get irritated with how early people start lighting them off (ahem, July 1st) or what, but I just want nothing to do with it.
Take me to a professional fireworks show where I am a safe distance from the pyrotechnics and I'm good. But otherwise - I'm totally over it.
Wah wah. Excuse Uncle Ebenezer Sam over here.
Enjoy this throwback of my little Uncle Sam in his stars and stripes and have a great Fourth of July!
