My Smoke Detector Adventure
(Inspired by Steve Tanner)
You may not realize it, but my inspiration to blog came from my friend and now Kidology Web Director, Steve Tanner. His forum homepage is at www.steveandamysly.com but all the conversations end up at the Tannerworld Junction. There you can read about… well, just about anything. From beverage reviews to bathroom hand dryer advertising to the Trash Cans of DisneyWorld to his new toothbrush to the history of Dorito’s logos or watch Star Wars as an animated GIF! It’s all there among thousands of the other 13,547 posts Steve has posted to date!
But this week, his inspiration went to all new heights and INSPIRED ME! It was his latest edition of This New Tanner Condo. (Changing the Smoke Detector!)
I was so inspired, I decided that I needed to blog my own adventure with a smoke detector. My smoke detector wasn’t broken, but it has needed a new battery for awhile now. So here is the blog record of my ADVENTURE this evening. I’d like to dedicate this post to Steve Tanner.
Here is my upstairs smoke detector. It has been disconnected for several months. (My wife claims it is several years… but saying several months would still be true, and it doesn’t sound as bad.) You see, while my smoke detector is wired in, the battery was low and started beeping in the middle of the night several years, er, months ago, so in a sleeping stupor I ripped it from the ceiling and tossed it behind my bedside table and went back to sleep. There it lay for… MONTHS until I read Steve’s post!
Now wasn’t that EXCITING?! Aren’t you so glad I blogged this? For more fun and exciting posts be sure to visit www.steveandamysly.com TODAY!
