"IN DOG YEARS, I`M DEAD"
Friday, August 07, 2009
Again I was awakened, about 4am, this time by the fire alarm. I got up. There was no fire. There was, however, a fire alarm having a nervous breakdown, and refusing to shut up. It is one with an integrated ten year battery - no switching it off by removing that.
This was the second panic awkening in two nights, and I had had enough. Instead of doing something sensible with it, I completely lost my temper, rushed out into the night, and hurled it away into the next field.
Back to bed, thinking that was that.
But next morning, when I got up and out - it was still going! And so loud! Broadcasting to the whole valley. Possibly for ten years....?
Cue a shamefaced and painful hunt among the nettles for the errant ET, still loudly phoning home, and more sensible disposal.
"What was all that beeping last night?" asked my neighbour. "Did you not hear it?"
I told her I sleep very soundly.
Well, I would like to...
Who knows what tonight will bring....?
