America, At-At, and Beer: 4th of July. A patriotic homage to the country our ancestors worked hard to acquire from the British, only to have it ruined within years of Officer 2: "Calm down. We'll get an ambulance to check you out, and- our own people. A day where drinking beer, swimming, and lighting explosives are always allowed. And this was not how I expected my F: "Wait a minute! I didn't hit this guy! He came over to talk us because we had lit fireworks and our us three, and starts screaming holiday to end up. party was against his nation and stuff like that!" To have this story make more sense, the neighbors I'm talking about are British, so that should explain some things. Officer 1: "Does anyone here have anything else to say? It's around 7:30PM when we start the real party. My family and F's family all collab on this amazing day. We invited all our neighbors in the cul de sac, and some more, so the party was really kicking up. Most of them came out to party, but one family, who were our next door neighbors, didn't like it. Me and F's Dad both said the same story to the officer, while ED was ranting on and on about the party and how we were terrible to him. Then we all come back together and the officers speak up Officer 2: "Alright, so based on what we heard, you (Points to ED) are either faking your bruises r did something else. We're going to check that out later. As for this party, just keep the noise down and put the fireworks away. We don't want to come back They had moved in less than a month ago, so we didn't know them that well, but we were gonna try to hang out with them at this party. have to They declined after we asked them two weeks before, and nothing ever came of it. During the whole day, they were flying a Union Jack instead, which is fine because they're not American. break this party up." D: "Yes sir. We went ahead and had someone put them away, so there shouldn't be anymore fireworks. Anyways, at this time, we started getting the fireworks ready. Someone from the party bought at least $500 worth of fireworks, and they had loud ones. One of the first things we lit were two boxed of Saturn Rockets with 200 shots in them. Needless to say, it was loud. So The ED tried to make up more excuses, but the police werent having it. They shined a flashlight on his bruise and didn't even have to poke it or anything to tell it was makeup. They wrote him a ticket, and just as they were about to leave, we hear a loud boom. join the party, but not in a way you'd want loud, fact, that our European neighbor finally came out The ED's yard was on fire and their tree went up like a match. Almost immediately, neighbors on both sides ran over and started grabbing their water hose to douse the fire and put out as much as they can. One Officer radio'd in a fire truck, and the other went (Quick note: I added some extra "British slang") ED: "What the absolute bollocks is going on here!? Who 'ere is in charge!?" though the party to examine the damage with ED. Nobody really knew who this guy was, so they directed him to where me, F, and his dad were at. At first we didn't know who i was, but ED: "What did you wickets do!? I told you they were bloody reckless! They went and set my bloody house on fire!" we guessed who by the angry expression. Some little kid, maybe 9 or 10, ran out of the crowd and the ED. His hands were bleeding, so F's dad ran over to his house nearby to D: Well, howdy there Neighbor. I was hoping you'd show up." grab a First-Aid Kit. The other officer saw what was happening and used his radio to call for an ambulance, while F's dad ran over with the kit ED: "Show up!? I'm 'ere to put an end to your kerfuffling! You all are all Mickey! Shut it down now! Both him and the officer checked out his injuries, and it turns out that both the little boy's hands suffered 3rd degree burns, and one of his fingers had a major cut down the side of them. At that point, the music had stopped, and everyone was trying to figure out what was F: "Woah, chill out neighbor, it's just some light fireworks. This happens every year! ED: "Every year you disrupt your neighbors who are trying to get some sleep!? I want this all to stop now! Throw your party another happening while the yard was being put out time! The ambulance and fire truck show up not too long afterwards, and we all start taking statements. As it turns out, the little kid was ED's, D: "Well, it's not exactly a party. It's the 4th of July! I know you're from Europe, but in America-" and the firework that lit the tree on fire had belonged disrupting the peace, and I think a count of arson. the ED as well. ED was charged with child negligence, false police report, ED: "I know about your argy-bargy history! You celebrate how you're better than our country by doing crazy acts like this! F: "If you don't like it, then buzz off. It's our party, and half the neighborhood is here. We're not gonna stop unless we absolutely have After everything was finally done with at like 11:00PM, we called it a night and packed up. ED's wife went to the hospital with their son to." to make sure everything was fine, while ED himself was put in the back f the police car as they drove off. I'm not exactly sure how your The ED merely scoffed and stormed back around. Not even 30 minutes have passed before two cop cars come rolling down the street, and they have their lights on and sirens ohis house. We made nothing of it and continued with some mortars and sparklers all arrest a foreigner, so someone let me know. This morning, as we go outside to clean up the rest of the garbage, we can actually see the yard. All their grass was black and brown, blaring. F's Dad said that the ED must've called the cops, so he went to go deal with it. which means they didn't water it,, and the tree was solid black with no green or brown anywhere. The actual house itself seemed to be D: "Hello Officer, is this about the fireworks?" ok, apart from some fire singes on the roof where the tree hung over. Officer 1: "Yes and no. You do need to put the fireworks away, but we also got a complaint that someone at this party was physically harassing one of your neighbors." Moral of the story: if you give a kid a firework, expect him to ruin a massive party. As I was writing this, I get a call from F. He said that his dad found out that the little kid lost three of his fingers because lots of firework ED: "That would be me!" shrapnel ended up in his hand somehow. We think what happened is the kid lit a mortar, and must've put it in wrong in the tube or buried it and then lit it or just something. Either way, we do know it was a mortar because of the sound, but we can't figure out why it happened. As for the ED, his wife came over and apologized like crazy for his behavior last night. She told ED that doing it was a stupid ED comes running through us, but he looked very different this time. His face was darker, but with limited light it was hard to see what it was idea, but his words were: ED: "This young man right here! (Points to F) I asked him who was in charge, and he beat me up! Oh, the pain! I'm bruising over his "You have to show those dumb Americans who is really in charge still fistsr A deranged cockney chimney sweep ruins a 4th of July party
