At about 5 this morning, the fire alarm went off. I don’t know if I can stress enough just how loud the fire alarm here is!! It is so disorientating and loud that it isn’t recognizable as a ‘fire alarm’. Probably ‘air raid siren’, ‘tsunami red alert’ and ‘terrorist attack warning’ would come to mind before ever guessing that the blaring alarm was for a fire. The dead people in the cemetery five blocks away awoke from their eternal slumber, to be sure.
Apparently, a water pipe burst in another building and that is why the fire alarm in our building went off *raises eyebrows*. Highly suspicious. This has happened like 4 times in our building, in the early morning. Oh yes, what a hilarious prank, NOT!
