“I love the celebrations and the way that they light up the sky,” Dale said.
“Why? Okay, it’s pretty, but it’s also noisy and scares the dogs. And surely, we could celebrate without having to stay up half the night, and then deal with the traffic jam that follows.”
“So, what do you propose we do instead?”
“Cake!” It works for birthdays, and weddings,” Tina suggested.
“Why not? It lasts a little longer than some flashes in the sky and tastes a lot better too.”
“How about cake with sparklers on top?”
