I am trying, through a cloud of fatigue, to remember what particular law of physics it is that says that any given smoke detector on any given day will need its battery changed at 4:15 in the freaking morning.

I would like to know this law so that I can find the person who declared it so, and shove hot peppers up his nose.

You have that incessant beeping, too?? I cannot find it. CAN.NOT!! And of course, now I have my blog for the day.

You have more than one, right? Go through the entire house and change all the batteries now, otherwise you'll repeat this in a few days or weeks. If it happens again I will give you crap about it for at least a year.

You must not change them every spring and fall. If you do, then the batteries shouldn't run down.

I think Mine are no longer working. I have not heard a beep nor have I changed the batteries. Yikes, I better check in this before I am awakened at 4:15 AM.

Max must have thought that dinner was ready. Grin.

It's the same person who invented snooze alarms that are five minutes long... and sells them only to spouses.

(Perhaps you could shove cinnamon gum up his/her nose, too?)

how long did it take until you realized what the sound was?
That kind of thing starts in your dream, then ssllooooowlly wakes you up, then groggy and half awke you realize that it is the noise that awoke you, then you have to identify what the noise is, then you have to find it, then you have to stop it.
Or you could just put the pillow over your head until your hubby gets so annoyed he fixes it.

I'm in an apt. building. Someone in my building let's theirs beep like that for weeks. When it happened in my father's house (when he was still around in the 1980s), he would leave it like that until he bought a new battery. That would really piss me off. He thought it was a fire hazard to just take the old battery out, yet he couldn't remember to buy a battery. Maybe it was his head injury that made him like that.

My smoke detector is 15 feet up on a cathedral ceiling. And it's batteries go out at 4:15 am too.
