I got to work this morning and everything was going pretty normally for a Monday (basically, everything possible was going wrong, which is only to be expected on days that begin with M).
About 10:30 the fire alarm went off. We’ve been having a lot of testing and re-wiring lately, so I didn’t know whether to take this one seriously until a disembodied voice boomed through the library: “THIS IS A FIRE ALARM. PLEASE LEAVE THE BUILDING IMMEDIATELY.”
So I did.
Luckily it was really, really nice outside. Even more luckily it was a false alarm.
