what fire?

so i'm done. i don't have to work today. yesterday was my last day! YAY! so i'm sleeping in this morning after i pressed snooze three times on my alarm clock at 8am. i was supposed to go to the gym but decided against it when i felt like sleeping longer. haha. so then at 9 my alarm goes off again so i remove the mask...yes, i'm wearing a mask...and i think, i'll just lay here for a couple minutes. i have a totally crazy dream and it's just getting interesting when the fire alarm goes off. MAN! that is one high-pitched panic inducing sound!!! however, the thought that there might be a fire never occurs to me. i run out of my bedroom, grab a chair from the dining room, stand on it and there are no instructions on these things so i just rip it off the roof. well now there are wires hanging from it and i shock myself. ouch. under the flashing light it says "press and hold." so i'm pressing and holding and it is SCREECHING. when i finally feel as though i may be losing my hearing because it's not turning off, i throw it onto the hard floor and shatter it into pieces.

then i think to myself, "hey, why was that going off?" i look around...i smell the air...no sign of a fire. good thing.

now i have a wicked headache. what a way to start the day.

that's horrible! what a crazy unexplainable thing to happen in the morning. Please promise me you'll get another easier to understand model to replace it though, cause fires do happen. :)

I need a pedicure, do you know if your place is open sundays? what's the phone number?

At my parents house the fire alarm was right outside the upstairs bathroom, so that the steam from a shower would set if off. Super annoying... they finally took it down. I hope you're enjoying your holidays!
