What's a perfect way to jolt people on a hot and humid afternoon? Trigger the fire alarm! Unintentionally, of course.
Desiccants are materials used to keep other items dry. These pellets are blue when dry, and slowly turn pink while these absorb moisture from the environment. Pouring newly dried desiccant pellets wouldn't be such a big deal if it didn't stir up a lot of dust... dust that set off the smoke detector!
Everyone went out of the building as the fire marshals determined which sensor was set off (and I, along with Tita Dory, Dara and Ate Lucy, knew exactly which sensor was triggered - it was above us). Many minutes ticked by before the Fire Brigade showed up, only to find out that it was a false alarm.
What a way to break the monotony on a warm (it's already November!!) and sunny Wednesday afternoon. =)
