Today at work we were talking about fire safety. I'm an insurance agent and we have lots of programs offered by different insurance companies to help you reduce the risk of fire damage, injuries etc.
It reminded me of a time a few years ago when the fire department had a demonstration booth at the fair that showed kids what to do in the event of a fire in their home.
Jagger, Stephen and I watch the group of kids in front of us going through the drill and I thought this would be a great lesson for the boys.
The smoke alarm went off, black balloons were lowered to simulate smoke filling the room, then the kids felt a door that was heated, decided that was not the best escape rout, then climbed out the window.
The kids ahead of us finished and it was our turn.
The smoke detector sounds and the fire fighter asks Jag what you are supposed to do when the alarm goes off.
With excitement in his voice Jag raises his hand and shouts"Take out the batteries!"
3 fire fighters staring me down would normally be a dream come true...Not so much in this case.

This made me laugh out loud!

And I have to agree that three firemen staring you down would be pretty awesome (under different circumstances)...
