Smoke Detectors

Standard

thSeriously . . . how is it that your smoke detectors ONLY chirp in the middle of the night!!!! Ugh . . . I was awakened very early Saturday morning (O’dark thirty) to the sound of one of my smoke detectors chirping because the battery needed to be changed.  Every minute that thing was sounding off with that high pitched chirp.  I finally got out of bed to see which one of the 3 upstairs it might have been.  So I stood there waiting . . . waiting . . . waiting to hear it and it NEVER went off again!!! It’s as if “they” know your there and they just want to yank your chain!!! Well because it NEVER chirps during the daytime I totally forgot about it.  So of course, it went off again (O’dark thirty) Sunday morning (this time I located which one it was), then it stopped and I forgot about it AGAIN! I went to bed last night and just as I got comfortable my eyeballs popped open & I remembered that I hadn’t changed the battery yet. So the big dilemma was do I get out of this oh so comfortable & toasty warm place to change that stickin’ battery NOW or do I just lay there and pray that it won’t go off at O’dark thirty AGAIN . . .  I totally considered praying about it but ultimately I got my rear end out of bed and changed the stickin’ battery! LOL
