Ah, a three-day weekend full of FREEDOM and ‘MURICA is right upon us.
I do get a little worried about a terrorist attack on the homeland during Independence Day because of the significance of the day. But I tend to think if such a thing were to happen, it would be some carefully planned attack but by the lone wolf variety.
My father never let me play or buy with fireworks for two reasons. (1.) He thought they were too dangerous (though I think he probably thought I wasn’t very sharp) and that I’d end up doing something really dangerous unsupervised. (2.) He said it was nothing but money going up in smoke, and since he was a Depression Era child, I could reason with that. However, looking back at things, he was a smoker for most of his life so that’s a bit of a hypocritical comment. Part of me wishes I would have asked him about the double standard as a child, but then again, I don’t think I’d want to piss off the old man.
I’m sure we’ve all heard of the Butterball Hotline, a free turkey cooking service provided by Butterball. But yesterday I learned Ball Park Brands has a similar hotline for cooking hotdogs – Just call 1-844–4FRANKS, tweet them @BallParkBrand using #MakeItFinest, or text them at 57872.
