My annual dislike of 4th of July fireworks
So it’s 12:25 and the neighbors across the street just started their firework display. They have been shooting them in the street and it’s so close to my window it’s frightening. I’ve never been a fan of fireworks. The “pop” sound sounds like a gun going off and when it’s close my nerves make me feel like I’m in the middle of a war zone. I’ve probably jumped at least 10 times in fright already.
I am like a dog in the way I react. So I have a blanket over me and white noise to help me stay calm. I have been like this for hours and honestly I’m just going to be having such a bad night sleep. If I was outside, I’d probably be running to “safety” with my ears covered. That’s what it feels like to me when fireworks go off.
I just wanted to share even though I probably share this each year. I feel it’s important for people to know that dogs and cats are not the only things frightened by the noise.
