Haley fourth of July! Today is the day we celebrate when our country earned its freedom. I was a patriotic citizen. I celebrated the festivities with the rest of them. I gave standing ovations to flaming pieces of metal. I considered lighting of red sticks that make a loud POP fun. I worshiped a piece of colored fabric to the tune of a unintelegible song derived from the most obscure war in history. I paid eight for a red white and blue snow cone. I was patriotic. I was a good citizen. I was American for crying out loud. But I also consumed ten bags of English tea licensed by the queen herself. There is a lesson in there somewhere.
I would like to apologize for any typos. I wrote this at night with my tablet.
