Panic in Dreamland

I was peacefully sleeping when I heard a "beep". A loud familiar beep that only comes from a failing smoke detector. My chest tightened, my gut liquefied, and I could hear my heart pounding in my head. I tried to go to sleep. I stuck my fingers in my ears... but by the second "Beep" and the following irregular heart beat prompted me to wake my poor husband at 4:41 am. He was WONDERFUL and changed the battery at the butt crack of dawn.


*I may have issues with smoke and smoke detectors forever*
