Snippets overheard at fireworks, Downtown Albany


...The WHOLE universe. This is just a known principle of NATURE. (heavy guy in blue t-shirt. Long, curly hair tied back in pony tail, scraggly beard and sideburns with large patches of skin showing through)

(Police sirens)

Wooooooooooooooooooooooo! (an adult)

Yeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaahhhh, booooooyyyyy! (a child)

Stop clapping STOP CLAPPING THEY ARE NOT OVER YET! (girl, about six)

You know, right now there are probably 30,000 fireworks displays going on simultaneously around the country. And every fireworks display needs, what, one to five people to run it? That’s, like 100,000 peopole. Who are these people? What do they do the rest of the year? That’s the same amount of people into stamp collecting. Or model trains. I think I’ve found a micro-niche. Where is their magazine? (husband of a friendly acquaintance)
