#884 I just want to play fireworks, even though summer is over


A set of fireworks

I bought a set of fireworks at Machiyamachi that is a wholesale district in Osaka. Even though it was only 180 yen, the staff at the fire works shop was kind to me.
I have not played with fireworks for a long time. It may be because I don’t have a child. I don’t know why I just wanted to play with fireworks when I passed by the shop.

Do you play with fireworks alone?

When I got home, I gave the set of fireworks to my husband.
I said “Let’s play fireworks tonight!”
He answered “No! You do it yourself.”

“What kind of people play with fireworks alone!?” I thought.
It’s weird if I do it alone.

He said he would be embarrassed when other people saw us.
I was so disappointed with his answer.

Even though summer is over

I displayed the fireworks on a cabinet because there was nothing I could do.
After a few days, he reluctantly said “It’s alright to play with fireworks someday at the weekend.”
I was happy to hear that. But I am not sure because he changes his mood all the time.
I hope he will keep his promise.

独りで花火って、寂しいよね。
下町の路地裏で、一人で線香花火なんていうのは、いとおかし、って感じだけど。。。
やっぱりnakoさんの旦那さんは優しいね。
一緒に花火をやってくれるなんて。
花火やってる間見られてるのは、旦那さんじゃなくて、花火の方だからって言っておやりなさいな。
あんまり何か言うと、やってもらえなくなっちゃうかな?

約束は実行される様子もなく、逃げ切られて秋になりそう。
だからといって、一人で花火したらトラウマになりそう。

一人で映画も観るし、雀荘にも行く。
けど花火は一人でできないなぁ〜

大人になって花火をするのって
案外と勇気がいるってことなのね。
