Have I mentioned that I was not born in the good ol U S of A?
I was born in Japan. My dad was in the military and was stationed at Kadena Air Force Base.
Anywho, Mindy loves America.
When she does this, I always remind her that I was not "born in the U.S.A" and that I just think America is ok. She pretty much has a conniption fit every single time. It is pretty entertaining.
Just to set the record straight though, I probably love America more than Mindy. Most people get super wasted on days like St. Patrick's day, Cinco de Mayo, or maybe New Year's Eve. I get drunk on Memorial Day, Labor Day and Independence day.
A few years back on some national holiday in the summer, I got so drunk I let this picture happen.
I believe that not long after this picture was taken that we started shooting bottle rockets out of high life bottles. Being the intelligent person that I am , I put several rockets in one bottle, lit them, and then held the bottle away like you are supposed to. The rockets didn't go off. I just stood there holding the bottle out. Kayla looks over at me and says "Um Ally, your neck is on fire." See the wicks had come off the rockets and were sitting on my neck. Since I was drunk I did not feel them. I ended up with burns on my neck that look like a vampire bit me. You can still see them years later if I get flushed or angry.
That is how much I love America.
I was exhausted from loving America so much that day.
