Chaos! Sirens! No Sleep!

The first night my roommates stay at my house, and it is total chaos! At 1:30 in the morning, the smoke detectors start going off all throughout the house. I get up, having just gone to bed an hour previous, but I can't find anything wrong so I go back to bed. Then, at 3:40 in the morning, they go off again. This isn't the little chirp-chirp, like when a battery is low; this is a full fledged piercing siren scream coming from all six smoke detectors in the house. An HOUR later I was able to get it to stop by completely disconnecting what I found to be the faulty one.
I am totally exhausted this morning. I guess I can call the fire department to look at it. ??? They owe me a favor anyway. I took a picture of one of them that was printed in the paper, and their "rule" says he had to buy ice cream for all the fire fighters who saw it. I'm sure a lot of fire fighters got their share of ice cream!

I would have needed therapy after that loud screaming middle of the night noise. Clearly I'm not ready to be a parent!
