*I* count sparklers. ;)

How do you pronounce "bougainvillea?" Were you screaming it correctly?

I was yelling /bugənˈvɪljə/. (Secondary stress on the first syllable, but I closed the IPA window already.) I don't know why I knew the pronunciation but not the meaning, but sometimes weird bits of knowledge penetrate the brain.
