...is that fire alarms, while inconvenient, never strike me as surprising. We have had them three days in a row in my building here, and the effect is not to make me think, "How odd!" but rather "Wow, this is just like high school." Grrrreat.
Obviously that is not the only impact high school had on me. I learned lots. Honestly! But when everything I learned in AP Bio about the muscle groups in a cat has completely deserted me, I am confident that I will still remember the constant fire alarms. How true it was that if there ever had been a fire we all would have burned in our classrooms.
