To celebrate our nation’s Independence Day we went to a friends party. They live in New Jersey directly across the river from the Empire State Building. Perfect views of the big Macy’s fireworks display. Of course the light show didn’t start until 9:30 which is way past LTD’s bedtime, but when he saw the fireworks it was all worth it. Not because he was crazy excited to see them, because he was half-asleep, but because he said the following in a tired little voice. “Next year we will come back and I will wear my Clark Kent costume and take it off and turn into Superman and fly up to the fireworks and touch them with one finger.” Let’s hear a British person say that. Happy Fourth of July.
