New Year's Resolution

This year, I'm going to take my dad down to a fireworks stand, buy one of every firework on the top shelf, and set them off together. He told a story over Christmas about how much he always wanted to get a certain huge firework, but could never bring himself to spent his whole fireworks budget on it, when he could get a ton of firecrackers and bottlerockets instead.

I love my dad, and I really respect him, but I don't have ton of ways to really communicate with him. Popping firecrackers together was one when I was a kid. This year I resolve to take it up a notch.
