A Fourth Worth Considering
Having my best friends around for the Fourth of July, plus the fact that we ate a TV dinner, plus the fact that they'd brought over their guinea pigs, PLUS THE FACT that we had an awesome self-made fireworks display, MINUS the fact that my friend gave me some uncalled-for major Harry Potter spoilers, I've decided that I had a pretty cool July #4. A few days beforehand, my friends had gotten here after traveling across the country from Las Vegas, Nevada, alllllllllllllllllllllll the way over HERE, to North Carolina. Having this particular night being the Fourth, we ate a TV dinner of home-made pizza, while watching Despicable Me. (It MAY have been the night AFTER the Fourth, because I don't remember totally.) They had brought along their pet guinea pigs, Luna and Hershey, Luna whom was mostly white with a collar-shaped streak of grey, and Hershey whom was various shades of chocolatey brownish (Thus her name!). We all had a good time holding them and watching them run around in their cage and eat hay from their little hay thingie. Very late in the nighttime, probably around nine-thirty or ten, my dad fot out in the middle of the cul-de-sac and set off a fireworks display that by far outplayed one that took place in the neighboring roads. And then there were the pop-its we used; you squeeze them and throw them at the ground and they explode. As we discovered, don't squeeze them TOO hard or they'll pop on your hand instead!!! After a VERRRRRRRRRYYYYYY long talking-time (Which was definitely a lot longer than we should have done), we finally drifted off around one in the morning, with an overall perfect Fourth of July to look back on.
