Seriously, possums, the economy must be doing fan-fucking-tastic, because last night Liberty Mutual gave us a display of their wealth by blowing half of the fireworks available in China into the air.
Right across the street from my house.
I think every dog in Jeffries Point lost it’s fucking mind.
I don’t like fireworks, because they are a waste of money in every which way possible, but the noise usually doesn’t bother me, however: this was no joke. I thought bombs were going off next to my house. Holy fucking shit. Little Dog was a shaking mess and the big one wasn’t to be found until I discovered her new panic room in the bathroom.
To illustrate the panic room:
Next time, Liberty Mutual, do the barge in the harbor thing. Seriously. You probably don’t care so much about all of the residents who live in immediate contact to the property the fireworks took off from, but a barge would have been a lot nicer.
I hope no one else things using that property would be a good idea.
On that note, dear City of Boston. What’s up with the property next to Piers Park where the fireworks came from? I got it, you use it to park your police cars and there are some other shags on that piece of prime real estate.
I mean, sure, why WOULD anyone go on that property and clean it up so the residents don’t have to stare at a chain-link fence and a tarp that, at this point, is starting to shred and certainly blog the fantastic view of the city. Not like anyone who lives on Marginal Street wants to see the view of the city. Sheesh. Who cares.
Seriously. Please don’t start using this property for regular fireworks, cause that would really really really suck with the noise and all.
Ever considered building something for the community there? like an outdoor swimming pool or so?
I didn’t think so.
Also, if you continue to use this property for fireworks, spend $20 on a few flyers and warn the neighborhood, so we don’t all go running for our basements.
Update: Apparently they WERE shot from a barge. Didn’t look, feel or sound like it at all on my end and I have been through a few New Year’s fireworks that go from barges. Maybe the barge was closer to the shore line or so. Well, blogging ain’t news writing, folks. Still was impossible loud and, you know, everything else I said. :)
