Now thats the spirit
As a child I fell in love with the 4th of July and all of its red white and blue festivities. As a so-called adult I think that its just not the same. I wish I could borrow someones kid to live vicariously through.
I want to watch the 4th of July parades, eat american flag cake, drink sugary soda, run barefoot on the grass, hold a sparkler till it just about burns your finger tips & finally, watch the fireworks while listening to the star spangled banner. That pretty much sums up my most memorable 4th of July that co-encided with a pretty large family reunion in Connecticut. So far nothing has even compared to that 4th of July when I was all of 13 years old, that was a different time, place and state of mind. Now I will go back to my lonesome backyard and sit in the sun, soda in hand and book in mind.
