The fire alarm went off at the Longmont Rec. Center tonight. John and I were on the workout floor, we headed to the day care center, when there was an announcement that there was no fire and no need to go outside. That was a relief. The alarm, though, was blaring. Jet's been scared of the fire alarm in our house, much less something of this caliber, so we headed on in anyway.

When we got into the daycare area, it was aural relief. It wasn't nearly as loud in there. Finally, they managed to get the thing shut down, so we headed towards the changing rooms.

In each room was a strobe light, still flashing. In the hallway to the area there would still be occasional blasts of alarm that made me jump every time. While we were changing Jet, he started saying, "Cheese! Cheeeese! Cheese!" He was staring fixedly at the strobe.

It took us a minute but we finally realized he thought it was a photographic flash!! He was saying, "Cheese!" cause he thought his picture was being taken! Woohoo! When we asked him if that was so, he nodded, "Pictures! Cheese!!"
