Break in the Action, Part Two

“Independence Day, Chet,” Bernie said. I knew something was up, just from the smell of fireworks coming from the bag he was carrying. Fireworks! “Hey, easy, big guy.” Oops. I got back down.

“The house is a shambles,” Bernie said, “and people are coming over.” I watched Bernie tidy up for a while. Then he poured himself a beer and took a break. We sat out back, a beautiful morning with a clear blue sky.

“Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” Bernie said. He sipped his beer. “Here’s a question – can you even achieve happiness through pursuit? Maybe it’s the wrong way to go.” No idea what Bernie was talking about, but I was pretty happy at that moment. Then I picked up the scent of … yes! – a forgotten hot dog under the grille, maybe a bit burned but I’m not too fussy that way. I got even happier.

Happy Fourth, everybody!
