The Sparklers of '10
As a firework, sparklers are underrated. Maybe because there's no explosions. I'm all for recreational explosions, but that doesn't exclude sparkler-play now and then. We still had some left over from the summer of 2009 (we bought a lot) and lit a number of them up in the darkened back yard recently.
Or maybe sparklers are dismissed as not XTreme! enough, though of course people manage to burn or otherwise harm themselves every year with sparklers. Mostly little kids, sorry to say. Adult supervision is required, as the package says. It's a task I don't mind doing.
