We had a fire drill at work today, and it made me feel like I was back in high school. I considered skipping out and heading downtown instead of going back to work when it was over. But I probably would have gotten caught, like the time when I was a sophomore and I was in study hall when the fire-drill bell sounded. "Let's go to Murphys," a bunch of us decided. "They never take attendance in study hall." Well, they did that day, and we ended up in detention. How come the people who routinely break the rules so often get away with it, but the ones who decide to do it once for a lark so often get caught?
