What is really fun is watching a stumbling-drunk guy lighting fireworks. I mean fun in it’s broadest description: you laugh, you feel a looming inevitable destruction, you have a personal stake in the activity if that rocket heads your way, and thus the spray of light overhead hits your heightened senses like a warm kiss after a beating. Although, if you’re the drunk, you just wake up with burnt fingers and the memory of everyone laughing as you risked your life for their entertainment.
