The fire alarm went off today, as usual. We all trudged outside and stood miserably in the rain for ten minutes. When the adults gave us the all-clear, we sprinted inside like we were storming the beaches of Normandy. And just as we were entering the building, the alarm went off again. We all stood there, confused, and you could tell some people were contemplating just making a break for it and bolting for the dorms.
But they shepherded us back outside. Some guy muttered to me, “Our building is such a troll.”
