Reminder: Fireworks are Best Left to Professionals
Says the girl who once had a hole melted in her bra (which she was wearing at the time) after contact with an errant bottle rocket.
I’m going to tell you this story every year, even though it didn’t result in serious injury. I’ve always been a little bit afraid of backyard fireworks, especially when people have been drinking, and I plan to continue being an embarrassing fraidy cat about them. Did you know that sparklers can reach 1800 degrees? And that ~6,300 people went to U.S. emergency departments around the holiday last year for firework-related injuries?
Be careful, and have a great holiday!
