i'm pretty confident that "other" means drinking

Other, could be, mowing the lawn or painting. If you drink then you need to set off big fireworks! At 1130 pm, because it's dark and people are in bed and the county allows it.....

I did absolutely nothing besides plug my ears. I hate the firecrackers and all the unneccessary smoke. I guess I did watch 5 minutes of fireworks on television only because it was accompanied by Stevie Wonder's music.

Other could be we did three of the five choices - that's the problem with poorly worded possible responses.

In my case, other means simply to do my daily chores. My husband worked at his job. It was a normal day, except for the storm and occasional reports of firecrackers by the neighborhood children.

I had a great BBQ with my family! Then I procedded to set off fireworks..inside the city limit mind you...take that city commission! Then I took my "good" fireworks out to my sisters house just outside of town where we had a great time! By the way, I would just like to say that since they banned fireworks in the city the "lights over Lawrence" shows have been no better than the $30 fireworks you can buy at a firework tent..Come on Lawrence!!!!!! If you're going to ban fireworks the least you could do is have a kick ass show

We went to Burham Park to watch the fireworks. They were okay - a little mundane and the grand finale wasn't as nice as last year's. We still had a nice time. It would have been nice if they could have lowered the spot light on the crowd during the firework's display - that was blinding. All in all it was a good time. It was good seeing the town's people all gathering together. Driving home wasn't bad either - I didn't run into any traffic. There were a lot of loud parties though.
