Lantern Festival was Sunday. It sounded a lot like this:
BOOM crack crackle pop pop boom BoOm!
We (BOOM!) ate a lovely meal with our friend Helen and her family. (crackity crack car alarm bang boom!)
The rain outside (pop pop flash bang poppity popple) did not deter her brother (BANG!) from setting off firecrackers on the very balcony of their apartment.
BANG BANG! BANG BANG ISTHE CEILINGCOMINGDOWN? BANG BANG BANG!
Helen's niece was a properly padded, roly-poly Chinese cutie and the dumplings were (snapper snappity pop bang) delicious.
