AM Fire Drill

on 05.28.2014

Thereís nothing like a 2 am fire drill to really set the mood for your next day. Last night around 2, the dam things went off. As I run out of the room, I realize I need my glasses, so I have to run back and get them. Then itís down the stairs to see what is burning. Nothing. To the basement. Nothing. No carbon monoxide alerts either. After a couple minutes of the alarms going off, and scaring the shit out of the kid, and dog. I finally found one of the detectors to be faulting out. Doing the only rational thing, I unplugged it to turn the fucking alarms off. I did realize one thing, our dog will never make it out of a fire. He went upstairs and hid under our bed. We will miss him if there is a fire. --Jay

Those things never work right... They always go off when I cook.

At least a false alarm is better than an actual fire! Little asian elves come into my house at night and steal my iron.

smoke alarms run by household power, should be replaced by battery operated ones
