SPARKLERS ON YOUR iPHONE – REALLY?!
SPARKLERS ON YOUR iPHONE – REALLY?!

This morning we were talking about fourth of July festivities, plans, and fireworks. The subject of “sparklers” came up. Yes, those innocent burts of flammable light that we held tightly as children and even ran around with while twirling them in circles. Are they dangerous?  Sure, they are. Three of them equal the intensity of a flame emitted from a blowtorch. That being said, it goes without saying that “safety first” with ANY type of firework should be Priority One. But there’s no need to take it THIS far.

While we were talking about sparklers, our producer mentioned that “there’s an app for those.” Ugh. Really? Is that the same? No. No, it’s not. The re-creation of a holiday mainstay is NOT the same when it’s re-created on your smart phone. The same with fireworks. Are you really gonna “ooo” and “aaah” watching the sky light up on your iPhone?

How about this? Exercise some adult supervision and use the real thing. And GO to the fireworks! Get a blanket. Pack a picnic basket. Then stretch out on that blanket and gaze into that night sky and watch it light up in holiday splendor. Then afterwards you can use your phone to call or text somebody how awesome everything was. Yes, I know there’s an app for practically everything. That doesn’t mean you have to use them.

Happy a happy and safe fourth of July.
