Does it count that I’m working a (licensed, professionally led) fireworks show tonight?
At least this year I’m not pounding sand. Sand, if you haven’t seen the set-up of a traditional, manually fired, shows, is used to hold the mortars in place. And it needs to be pounded down firmly. At least, in the years i was doing that part of set-up, I could honestly say that I had empirical evidence that I was at least “smart enough to pound sand.” ;-)
