Not sure what we’re supposed to be looking at here, but I’ve composed several possible titles, regardless:
“The holidays are over. Deal with it.”
“The postbox always rusts twice.”
“Acid rain is no joke.”
“Alison, your (sic) aim is true”.
I like “b”
“Just because you’re handling your holiday fireworks safely, doesn’t mean you won’t accidentally burn down somebody’s mailbox across the street.”
You nailed it, Gal. As near as I can guess, fireworks shot off across the street from my house landed on my mailbox, burned the holiday greenery and ribbon to a crisp, and melted the paint off part of the mailbox.
There’s people who pay top dollar for that kind of distressing.
Ha! Make me an offer!
Distressing is right. A few days past July 4th some years ago, I found several burned-out rockets in my backyard and one ON THE ROOF OF MY HOUSE. I try to be a tolerant and patient neighbor, but the fireworks holidays give me a fair case of the homeowner heebie jeebies.
Stop it–seriously?!? Those must’ve been some weapons-grade fireworks! :-0
When my neighbors saw it they told me a story about having some work done on a leak in their roof. The contractor told them they found *bullet holes* in the spot he patched. SCARY.
When I was in high school a bottle rocket caught pine straw on our roof on fire. Luckily a neighbor saw it immediately and we put it out with the garden hose.
Or, yes, a variation on “b”: “Allison’s holiday goes up in smoke.”
