When is the last time that you really, really enjoyed yourself? Was it at your birthday party? Maybe, you love listening to your great uncle’s tales? Or perhaps you just went on an incredible journey to another country. Maybe, you prefer to stay home and read a good book. If staying at home isn’t your thing, did you get crazy going out with your friends the other night? You might have a blast staying out late and dancing with your friends!

When you have a blast, that means that you are having a wonderful time. You are really enjoying yourself! Having a blast probably means that you are laughing a lot. It can also mean that you are seeing something amazing that you have never seen before. Maybe, you are someone who is busy all the time with a stressful job. You might think that curling up under a blanket with a bowl of ice cream is a total blast.

Kelsey, Dominique, Jordan, and Andy are about to watch the fireworks celebration. Listen as they have a total blast!
