Our former housemate (and current house guest) says we look like squatters in this pic. I'm sure that people driving past were wondering why there were crazy people playing Scrabble outside in the snow.

I kid you not. I was able to spell "oxidator" on my first turn.
Score one for hitting bingo and finding humor in the situation!

Seriously, though, we were woken by our alarm saying "Warning! Carbon monoxide!" Talk about a scary way to begin your day. We had to evacuate and weren't allowed back in for several hours. In the end, everyone was safe- including the feathered and furry children. Hard to complain much when you get to live to see another day.

Now where are the people looking to buy stories for their after-school specials when you need 'em?

Glad to give you the giggles. I'm glad you stopped by the other night, despite my sinus-induced crankiness :)

Sooo I saw your tag and was like "why on earth would firefighters kick you out for carbon dioxide."

You silly. CO = that poisonous thing that sets off your alarm.

Much more sensical to kick you out for.

That must not have been fun, glad you're alright!

I'm alive toooo!
