Now, let me give you some examples.
So about two days ago, in the middle of the night, the smoke alarms started to go off. Now let me tell you, I seriously did not know what smoke alarms sounded like. So I was sleeping in my bed and all I could think was, "What is that? Can it please stop? Can't it tell I'm trying to sleep here?!"
Yeah. I enjoy sleeping.
So I finally realized after the second or third time, it was a smoke alarm. Eventually I walked downstairs, not ran, to see what was going on...
I could've died for all I know.
Welllll... no fire. Anywhere. But my whole family was just standing in the kitchen, at two in the morning, just staring at each other. Like "Hi! Good morning!" And eventually we all went back to bed.
The next day, I was chilling on my little perch on the couch, and they started going off again! I mean, seriously? Still, NO FIRE. Soooo strange...
Another example is, while I was washing my pretty blue bowl I used while making this granola, I dropped it in the sink and it broke... cutting two of my fingers on the way down. Yeah... I know, poor me. But here's the kicker, while I was taking the bag with the broken bowl in it to the curb, it scratched up the back of my leg. Ughhh, really??? The bowl strikes again.
Well, at least my life is becoming a lot more blog-worthy.
