Prompt: Fireworks- do they inspire you, or do you not like the noise and commotion?
I never understood the hype about fireworks. Every New Year’s Eve and Fourth of July we are bombarded with the bursting bombs of light that are somehow supposed to excite and entrance us. Yes, they are pretty- but hardly mesmerizing. The loud imitation of the star-spangled sky is only entertaining for a moment or two; after the first few shots you start to notice that all fireworks look the same. And the noise? The constant sizzle and boom of exploding projectiles is annoying, but luckily for me at least, easily drowned out. Honestly, I don’t mind the fireworks; I just don’t care for them either.
