“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” - Albert Einstein
The most curious person I have met is my 13-year-old son, Seth. Seth has lots of adventures, which we call “Sethscapades.”
Seth has always been very into and excited about reworks. This year, on the Fourth of July, he used his magic, came up to me, and said that he’s had fireworks ever since he was 3 and that he really wants fireworks this year.
Due to the guilt, I took him to get fireworks. At the fireworks shop, he helped make the salesman very excited by showing o his knowledge of fireworks. Later that evening, he put on a show, and he lit up a firework, and somehow, the firework shot off to the side and went over our fence and into our neighbor’s pasture.
At first, I didn’t really think much about it, until one of the other neighbor’s kids came running over and said, “You started a fire in the next-door neighbor’s yard.” I thought the kid was joking until I looked over into the pasture and saw a fire that was getting big fast.
I went to the backyard and grabbed a hose to help put the re out. Another neighbor, who was watching the bigger reworks, put a blanket on it. The next morning, Seth got up and said, “Dad, that was the greatest Fourth of July of my life.” There’s nothing like lighting the neighbor’s yard on fire.
