Question Authority. Absolutely.


It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere

We're expecting up to three inches of rain today. A real deluge, presenting me with a conundrum.

I don't have a 7th period at the end of the day. The cherubs left me to my own devices around 1:25. Big, fat H20 globules bombarded the ancient casement windows of Room 215.

I enjoyed a late lunch of leftover spaghetti with homemade meat sauce. The fire bell rang, slicing through my momentary solitude.

Frankly, I thought it was a drill, or that a kid had pulled the alarm. I had no students in my room. Unconcerned, I continued to eat, making a consicous decision to keep my butt parked at my desk. Listening to the hubbub growing outside, in a downpour, in the student parking lot below my room. That spaghetti was just so darn delectable.

Then, I heard the sirens.

Just like Elvis, I left the building. I walked out a full 15 minutes after the alarm had sounded. Expressions on the faces of the assembled throng, melting in the spring downpour, alternated between bemusement and scorn.

How could I? Well, I reckon I just did. And the sky didn't fall, after all. Turned out to be a fire in a trashcan. These things happen.

If I lived in the islands, things wouldn't be so rigid.

I'm glad you weren't truly in danger...but you COULD have been. Kinda embarrassing but I'm sure you'll get over it. :)

You rebel you. I think the sirens would have gotten me moving too.

You are a rebel and risk taker, no doubt. Superior sunset snap!

I've always wanted to ignore a fire "drill." Glad someone else had the same inclination--and lived to tell about it!

THE CLOUD FIDDLER

Hey, diddle, diddle,
The clouds on my fiddle
Are making it hard to play!

Hey, diddle, diddle,
I need a new fiddle
With all the clouds whisked away!

I might have done what you did, or perhaps I would have brought it with me. I do know I wouldn't have left it behind!

My roommate and I frequently lock the door, shut the blinds and put on headphones whenever the fire alarm goes off in the dorms. And look, we're still alive!

It daydreams, wanders and drifts among loosely and tenuously connected thoughts, often moving to sexual fantasies that quell its restless energy.
Consider that your sexual energy is likened to nuclear
energy in that it is tasteless, odorless but in this case it is also pure
electrical current that can generate enormous amounts of energy in your body.
