I’m not a big holiday guy, I usually keep things pretty mellow, but the fourth of July is a fun one. It’s not that I go out of the way or anything, or immerse myself in the history of the date, it’s just that the town I live in always throws a big bash. There’s bands playing music, tons of food and festivities, and of course fireworks. It’s a blast.
Unfortunately, my dog is not a fan of fireworks. The smallest firework going off will cause her to jump up bristling, full of adrenaline, and start barking. I’m pretty sure she thinks fireworks are somehow a direct attack on her. Which means the fourth of July and New Years are equal parts entertaining and annoying.
Today’s festivities probably won’t involve much writing, mostly drinking beer and eating unhealthy food. And tonight I’ll probably be baby sitting a loud, panicky dog. It’s a three day weekend though, so I don’t feel too bad about skipping my word count for a day. I’ll make up for it tomorrow.
Here’s wishing you all good writing, a nice weekend, and a happy holiday!
