At school today, my daughter and her classmates learned all about fire safety. They talked about smoke detectors (though, apparently every kid swore they didn't have one in their house), they discussed what to do when you hear one go off, and then they set one off to show the kids what they sounded like.
I was so happy to hear that they did this. It's smart, it's safe, and it's all kinds of great.
And she freaked.
Apparently, she really got the message and thought there was a fire. That coupled with the ear splitting sound did not sit well.
She's recovered nicely, but is now requesting that the smoke detectors she never knew we had be removed.
I'm 32, a dad, and I am not a douchebag...
