So you just started a town and want to be ghetto. Where do you start? Drugs? Guns? Prostitution? Maybe those are just too much for you and you want to be a ghetto city without realizing youâ€™re being ghetto. How about legalizing fireworks. There you go. Youâ€™re one step further to being ghetto.
Some of you may know that I despise fireworks. I can go on and on about the dangerousness of fireworks, but Iâ€™ll talk about the sheer annoyance of them. Now when I say fireworks, I want to exclude the good ones. The ones done by professionals. So you cities with fireworks shows and Disneyland are off the hook. What I am referring to is to the July 4th fireworks show by the inhabitants of these ghetto cities (my neighbors).
Fireworks didnâ€™t bother me as much before a year ago. It wasnâ€™t until after Caleb was born that my hatred for fireworks grew even more so. Thereâ€™s a big problem when your son, who doesnâ€™t sleep well to begin with, has to listen to all your neighborâ€™s crappy fireworks (both legal and illegal). These large booms and loud whistles donâ€™t do well to anyoneâ€™s sleep, much less a little one year old is sensitive to most and almost everything. By the grace of God, heâ€™s only woken up once, which we attribute to a night terror, but still I hear them fireworks going on and on. *wave my fist in the air*
Besides having these loud booms and shrieking whistles, many of the inhabitants in Duarte, CA donâ€™t seem to know how to clean up after themselves. Donâ€™t you love getting up the next morning having to drive through a bunch of used fireworks? I just love seeing ashes fly everywhere as my tires go over them. It is a beautiful sight if you have never seen it.
Itâ€™s midnight now. And fireworks are still going outside my home. Duarte, CA is ghetto. The inhabitants are ghetto => city is ghetto. Now youâ€™re just ruining everyoneâ€™s sleep and not just Calebâ€™s.
