Last night at my hotel ...


Because my life is not exciting enough!

Have you ever wondered what a fire alarm in a hotel sounds like?

Have you always made sure you knew the nearest fire escape?


Have you ever wondered if you would stop to throw on some clothes?


The alarm is loud! The strobe lights will cause you to have a seizure! And I sent my child out as I 'threw on something'!

We spent an hour outside on the sidewalk with a group of guests all in odd assortments of clothing, Pj's, and, uh...sheets. We were all old friends by the time the 5 trucks, ambulance and police cars left.

My husband had left to do some late night shopping at Wal-Mart. As he drove up to us, he asked me in a loud voice, "What did you do?!"

I mean, really now! Why would he think I had anything to do with it?!?!

I did not start a fire at the hotel!


It seems that a duct over heated because a maintenance man turned off a fan!

LOL! You just can't go anywhere or do anything without there being some sort of excitement involved. When does your book come out because it's going to be a hoot!!!

I'm certainly glad that no one was injured or burned at the fire.

Clint's teasing comment prompts the statement: "We're waiting..."! LOL

"What did you do?" LOL! How funny that that was his first thought. The first comment makes me wonder about the story behind it.

Glad everyone was ok. What a way to meet the neighbors! :-)

Terri said...

That is so funny, Rita! I'm afraid my husband would have asked me the same question!

Our fire alarm went off yesterday. It was from the candles on the cake to celebrate the marriage of two people from the school. But no fire trucks though. You have all the fun!

This happened to Kristie, Kevin ( my nephew ) and I on a trip a couple years ago. Here we were heading down 7 flights in our pj's at 3 am along with only one other person. When we got to the lobby it was biz as usual. All was calm despite the loud clanging bell. False alarm. I felt kinda dumb for trying. I guess everyone else slept right on.
