Instead, we just have a fire alarm that the fire department has to come shut off manually.
Wanna know how I know that? Well let's just say we had some visitors Tuesday night while I was preparing dinner, and they weren't expected dinner guests!
Panicking, after about 5 minutes of ear piercing beeping, Andrew and I decided we should call 911 to see what we should do about getting the alarm shut off. We were informed that a fire truck was on its way. Politely, I requested that she please radio the truck to let them know it wasn't an emergency, so there was no need for a siren. "Too late," she said. Gee, thanks.
Well after 15 minutes of the alarm sounding and our dogs having mental breakdowns, the firemen successfully shut off our alarm. We gave them a few BOGs - Be Our Guest coupons to CFA - and asked them to come visit us again, just don't mention the fire :)
What a night... what a humiliating night. But I'll tell you what... I enjoyed every bite of that roasted asparagus.
