Mine was..interesting, to say the least. First off it RAINED AND STORMED just as we were getting the grill going.
As if that weren't bad enough, my uncle got ROARING DRUNK and passed out early.
So Mom was not a happy camper, because the one who was supposed to be helping her grill was passed out drunk, and she was stuck grilling in the rain alone, as there are very few people she trusts to help her grill.
But, other than that, and the fact that everyone was starving and we didn't eat until OMFG OH DARK THIRTY (AKA 11 PM in this instance) the annual family fourth of July cook out went off without a hitch. A bit of a rarity for my family, but other than the general rowdiness that is to be expected at any gathering of extended family, it went just fine. So tell me, 'mos, how was YOUR Independence Day?
