OK, so yeah River Fire was tonight and it was awesome. For those who don't know, River Fire is like a brisbane fireworks festival which begins and ends with a dump and burn manoeuver performed by some sort of jet (please note that this trick is only legal in queensland... or so I'm told). It was a pretty crazy spectacle because they had fireworks coming off buildings as well off the barges in the river and well the river looked on fire, fancy that. Not that anyone was looking at the river though.
It was a great night, all except for one thing... My Dad.
Somehow he knows how to spoil a good occasion. Like tonight for example, I'm pretty sure he commented on every single fire work that they launched.
"Oh, that ones nice"
"So what?" laughs "So what?"
And so forth. It was extremely frustrating, I mean sometimes it's better just to sit and enjoy the silence. Being content with the moment. I guess that just isn't his style.
Anyway it's not a one off thing. For those who don't know there was a lunar eclipse on tuesday (I think) and the moon turned red. This is an event that happens only twice a century, so I went out onto the lawn and was just staring at this red moon and it got me thinking about all the deeper things in life. When my father comes out stands beside me, farts, and then goes back inside. Ughhhhhh.
