I can't think of a better item to post than this community's unfortunate fireworks display. As I watched this YouTube video, I couldn't help but think of the shoes that you and I are so fond of. Clogs are, of course, noisy, noisy, noisy. And more often than not, the footwear we pick out we like to be a bit showy, too. And who among us would shy away from enjoying our wooden goodness to the extreme? As I always say, "So many shoes. So little time." Oh, yeah. And wood is flammable, too. There are a lot of comparisons, but they don't always work. One notable exception, though, is the fact that this fireworks show ended up being one of the shortest in history. You and I, by contrast, both expect to savor our favorite footwear for years and years to come!
This video, by the way, dates from 2012. You can read more about San Diego, California's Big Bay Boom on Wikipedia.
