Instead of going down to the loop or the Shedd like I should have, I thought it would be fine to stand about a mile north on Lake Shore. A few hundred people thought the same, so my fireworks display turned out to be just people watching including a little kid throwing those things that pop when they hit the gound. What are they called? Anyway he was hitting people with them. Mom was taking a parenting break on the cell phone. At least I have tonight to make up for it. I’m going to Evanston for something. Remember, don’t try to cheat the system. You will lose.

    I think we used to call them “snaps.” Does that sound right?
