Pyrotechnics in stereo

We were kinda just hanging out, listening to Stevie Wonder on PBS’ broadcast of “A Capitol Fourth” when the fireworks began. I looked to the TV and while, yes, the fireworks over D.C. were a-happenin’ on-screen, I could also HEAR THEM LIVE. Cause they were, like, OUTSIDE, reflecting in the windows of another building. Squee!

So, luck be a lady indeed and she whispered to get the hell outside. So we went up to the roof and actually watched, live and in person, the nation’s fireworks display. No traffic, no crowds — just about 15 neighbors who happened to mosey out of our hiding places to take in one of the benefits the management company didn’t mention when they bragged about amenities.

Yeah, I am definitely renewing my lease next year. Because it’s so nice when the surprises happen to be wonderful. It’s the little things that make all the other stuff fade away.

I wish I’d thought to take a camera, but as I was out there sans bra, I figured I needed to keep my arms crossed anyway. 😉

    Ooohh, I know where I’ll be next year!

    Dragged the kids to my friend’s place in Man’s Asses… er, Manassas and sat on the front yard watching the two different shows she can see from her place. Enjoyed myself, but I missed your company!

    And again with the boobage and me missing it. I never get to see any of the good stuff!
