What’s the deal with fire lately?

Let me tell you about my recent run-ins with fire and you can judge whether I should be concerned or not.

Last week I was informed that we would be having a fire drill where I work either on the 12th, or the 13th.

Yesterday when I got home my wife asked me to toast a tortilla for her in our toaster oven. I proceeded to forget about it until it was pouring out smoke. Our house still smells like burned tortilla and our toaster oven will forever have some battle scars from that incident.

Last night on the Office, which is a pretty funny show if you haven’t seen it, the building was evacuated because someone left the toaster oven on in the kitchen. Funny coincidence huh?

Today, my building was evacuated for some unknown reason. Oddly it wasn’t because of the fire drill we are supposed to have. It was actually a real emergency.

And still yet to come is that fire drill that’s supposed to happen today or tomorrow.

  1. Let me add one… Friday night my dad set a plate of sausages on top of the toaster in order to keep it out of the reach of Nathan’s golden retriever. The next morning the toaster was melted, the plate had flame marks all over it, and nothing else had burned. Nick and I woke up in the middle of the night with this terrible feeling and prayed for like 30 minutes and then we felt better and went to sleep. My parents’ house should have been on fire. God is cool. That is all. 🙂


  2. One question…have you seen the BBC version (the original) of “The Office?”If you have not, netflix it immediately, or run out and by it. It makes the U.S. version pale in comparison.
