I am old and bald.
Stiritup: Man, my coat is missing a button.
When it fell off I put it in a thing, but now I've lost the thing.
Stiritup: Every year they test the smoke alarms in the building. They give us a notice the day before, so that we can all freak out and clean our apartments. The notice says around 8 AM, so I'm usually up by 7:30.
Because of the busybody routine the day before the alarm, and the early wake up time, I always get tired around 10:30 when they haven't showed up yet, so I lay down on the couch. Then as soon as I start to drift off to sleep, the fire alarms go off.
The fire alarms are way loud. They always shock the shit out of me.
wuzzIes: I too had duck encounters! We have been visiting this duck family for 3 weeks - or at least very similar looking duck families in the same area.
