Is it Too Early for Fireworks?

Josh and I returned to Mt Hood this weekend to ride 13 inches of fresh snow. Wanting to dodge the crowds and enjoy the untracked stuff, we opted once again for the Glade Trail. At the end of our second run some teens were hanging out in a jeep right where the trail meets the road. I answered a few of their questions about the trail and during our exchange, one of them reached out the window and offered me a bottle-rocket. Now, I love fireworks as much as the next guy, but I declined. It makes me chuckle even now. What were they doing with bottle-rockets? And what made them offer one to me? I guess in all my snowboarding gear I don't look like a 34 year-old, volvo-driving, computer nerd, who isn't even carrying a lighter or an empty bottle to enjoy such a toy.

I am always sad when I seem more prepared for responsibilities than fun.
There is a great lesson in this story: you never know when you'll need a bottle and a lighter.

I agree with Adam.
