Fireworks! Poor dog upstairs...
I've spent about 12 years of the last 18 living in Arlington, and have managed to get my act together and go see Town Day stuff (including the fireworks show) like...once, maybe twice? I gotta figure out where to pay more attention...
Melissa just mentioned her niece playing a trading/bartering game for fidget toys...

Random thing for us Gen-Xers, especially who grew up as boys in the 80s... did we not have a "win stuff off your friends" game/toy/pastime ? Like generations before us had marbles, and after there were pogs, pokemon cards, maybe those battle spinning tops... like all we had was star wars, gi joe, and transformers, but no system for vying with friends for theirs and vice versa...
