Sparkler exits have been on my mind lately. I think partly because 4th of July wasn't that long ago. And it doesn't help that every day on my way to and from work I drive by 2 firework warehouses. There's so many brides out there dying for a sparkler exit. And I completely understand the appeal, after all look how pretty they are.
I think part of it is that where I grew up fireworks were illegal, and have always thought fireworks were something meant only for professionals. I realize that sparklers aren't quite fireworks according to most people, but I completely associate them together.
I'm not even sure I've held a sparkler, let along a full blown bottle rocket or some other type of firework. (My knowledge is clearly limited by lack of use.) And while I wouldn't have to actually hold a sparkler if we did an exit, I would still need to run through a tunnel of flame. Fire plus a bunch of drunk people just seems to scream dangerous to me. But while I'm not completely sold on actually doing an exit, I still love looking at pictures of people who are brave enough, so here's a few more fire hazard photos for your viewing pleasure?
