you wanna see my what?

The hot trends at Boomsday this year were monkey nuts and light up grillz. The fireworks were great as usual but I didn't get photos that were any better than I did last year. What is a "Monkey Nut?" One young couple was happy to pose with theirs. It's a cold drink served in a carved coconut shell.

The Monkey Nut sign made me do something out of character. I felt compelled to take a photo of the sign with my cell phone camera and then send it to my improv brother Dave's phone despite the cost. He must love monkeys because he recently emailed a video to the members of the group. You don't have to try hard to imagine what the monkeys are doing in the video.

I saw a lot of people on Neyland Drive with rainbow lights emanating from their mouth. They had purchased a set of light up grillz from a street vendor. In case my mother is reading this, let me explain that grillz are pieces of jewelry that fit over your teeth like a retainer. Rappers usually have lots of diamonds or other gems on they grillz. Oops, I mean "their grillz." The street vendor posed for a photo. He actually posed for two photos because you couldn't see the light in his mouth until I turned off the flash.
