Are you here for some fireworks and general Fourth of July yammering? Good. Let's all make this red, white, and boozy sangria and talk about why we all hate fireworks.

  • They scare dogs. 
  • They scare little kids. 
  • They scare me because I hate crowds and loud noises and people. 
  • They are bad for those with PTSD.

I mean, yes, they look pretty and all but.. I would rather watch them safely from my backyard than setting them off in the street.

So... what is everyone doing for the Fourth?  Are you cooking out or going somewhere or binge watching something great or doing Endora makeup? Let us know! 

(IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT MY ASSHOLE MANAGING EDITOR KAREN WOULD LIKE IT NOTED THAT FIREWORKS AND FIRECRACKERS ARE NOT THE SAME THING. IDC I HATE BOTH OF THEM. 

Managing Editor's note: Eye roll.)
