Taylor Swift says she has always loved "sparkly things," but as a child that would get her into trouble on Independence Day.

"I was always that little kid who would run around picking up used sparklers off the ground and I would inevitably pick up the SCALDING HOT BURNING end that was still smoldering," she writes on her MySpace Celebrity blog. "Then cue the screaming bloody murder in front of everyone and running into the house to ice your hand."

The country star, 19, recalls then watching the adults "shaking their heads because they saw you do the same thing last year."

"Gotta love humiliating childhood memories," she says. "Wish me luck this year. I think I'm gonna wear gloves."
