Happy Fourth of July! Here are a few ways I plan to celebrate my independence during this extended holiday.

  • fly the flag
  • listen to The Who
  • read Harry Potter to my kids
  • play wiffleball
  • eat strawberries
  • watch the World Cup Semifinals
  • have a second iced Americano
  • dig in the dirt
  • find Henry Rollin’s Love Letter to Ann Coulter on YouTube
  • mix Mentos and Diet Coke
  • eat a burger with lots of ketchup and extra pickles
  • walk to the park
  • finish the laundry
  • avoid driving
  • read the headlines on The Huffington Post
  • make Rice Krispy treats
  • finish Alvin Toffler’s Power Shift
  • learn the words to Elton John’s Don’t Go Breaking My Heart

Have a safe and memorable Fourth. Here is track six for the playlist: Won’t Get Fooled Again by The Who
