The weather forecast states tonight will have clear skies with a chance of awe at the will of humankind to provide magnificent explosions. The free know what to do in their spare time from asking whether something is a good idea to microwave or questioning the integrity of childhood’s nostalgic points. Feet shall feel the sting of sparklers.
