Thursday Thirteen: 13 Reasons Why I Left the 4th of July Festivities

13 Reasons I Left the 4th of July Festivities

  • 1. It was hotter than Henry’s crack!
  • 2. I’m not eating a lot of sweets right now….and the funnel cakes were too tempting!
  • 3. We didn’t have any of those fold up canvas chairs
  • 4. I couldn’t find the people painting faces…and I really wanted a frog or bug or something
  • 5. Did I mention that it was hotter than snot?
  • 6. And my hair was stuck to my forehead
  • 7. And there was a river of sweat running down my chest…I know lovely…
  • 8. My Sno-Cone was gone
  • 9. There was a fabric sale at Yates Remnant Store and I didn’t have money
  • 10. There was 45 more minutes to wait until the parade started
  • 11. I realized that the parade would be a bunch of cars with city officials waving…boring…
  • 12. I remembered that the man who belly dances in the parade has retired
  • 13. Did I mention that it was so hot that it felt like hell was rolling in?

Wow, sounds like a hot day! :) I don't blame you for leaving -- I'm not a big hot weather person, either, LOL.

Happy TT, and thanks for visiting mine! Have a great holiday weekend.

Robin said...

Hotter than snot. Now there's an image LOL...

I'm with you on the funnel cakes, I don't think I could have withstood the temptation either.

Happy TT.

Oh dear! I can imagine the hot day for you :)

Funnel cakes! Yum! Yum!

Happy Thursday!

Tink said...

I get the picture! ;-) Can you please send some warmth over here? For summer it's way too chilly!
Thanks for visiting my handfasting TT!

We had one reason for leaving - RAIN! LOL on the belly dancing man.

MamaArcher said...

Jeremy said...

Heat is a bummer when you want to be outside...

I know what you mean about the parade. The first year we were in our house there was a parade that went down our street. It was nothing other than cars, tow trucks, firetrucks, tractors, even a funeral hearse.Of course everyone waves. I stood there thinking what in world am I looking at?

Judi said...

How Funny! LOL! By the way...how hot is Henry's crack? ROTFL!!!

Sonya said...

Yeah, how hot is Henry's crack? LOL! I didn't go either. Why do I need to torture myself through the heat and traffic just to spend 20 minutes watching a bunch of fireworks that really don't thrill me anyway?!!!! I stayed home and watched my rebel neighbors shoot fireworks. It was free, no traffic, I watched them from the porch in my pj's, and all I had to do to get home was walk inside!

Sassy said...

OMG I loved it. I giggled over the hotter than Henry's crack. That's a new one on me.

Casey's Mom said...

I would do the same if I have to wait that long for the parade to start on a hot summer day.

Thanks for stopping by and for welcoming me at TT!

I didn't go to any celebrations yesterday. We had a friend over for a BBQ and that was fun enough. It was hotter than blazes here too. Happy TT.

bernie said...

So why did you leave? Oh yeah, btw, was it hot?

Amy Ruttan said...

LOL #1, 12 and 13.

I think I would have left too if the Belly dancing guy retired too!

Happy TT and hope you had a happy 4th.
