There's something about the 4th of July that makes one want to be colorful. Perhaps it's the sparklers and fireworks, but that's how I feel every time July 4 hits. This year, we had an amazing action-packed fourth that included, but was not limited to:
  • playing 4+ hours of intoxicated Trivial Pursuit
  • eating the most delicious homemade smoked ribs in a long time
  • seeing the fireworks from the best seat in the house - the roof of a row house in Gtown
  • watching a friend inexplicably back flip off a chair (twice) at a very crowded bar, completely by accident. Then, after the second mishap, hearing a bystander say, "well now he's just doing it for attention." Classic.
How was your 4th?
