Yep, I'm that lady you see on social media complaining about the neighbors and their fireworks. Just call me Karen.

I know I get on everyone's nerves, but I don't give a rat's ass. I have four pups, three of which whom are easily scared, and three horses, who are easily spooked by nature. Do you know how much a vet bill is if, God forbid, your horse gets scared and goes through a fence? Not to mention the emotional turmoil and the pain involved for the animal. So, let the big boys handle the fireworks downtown. I know, I know, you want your own chance to light stuff on fire. You'll be okay, you pyro!

Now I'm not saying I don't enjoy fireworks, because I do! I find them romantic, almost magical. I just don't enjoy kids having bottle rocket wars or roman candles that have gone awry. With that being said, I know folks are going to pop their own fireworks, but if you're going to do it, do it responsibly!
