That Time Everyone Thought I Wasn't Wearing Pants



So after many a comment from yesterday's post, I thought a little clarification was in order. 

The Scene: Me sitting in my living room....filming my vlog when the most frightening high-pitched sound started blaring from the ceiling and outside in the hallway. Once I identified that it was indeed the fire alarm and not Gabriel blaring his horn for the end of the world.....instant "calm" panic set in.

I got up and began searching for shoes and keys and pants.....

and this is where the miscommunication came in....I actually had pants on when I was filming but they were spandex work out pants. And if all my belongings are going to burn away, I don't think spandex pants are what I want to be left with.

....of course when your whole body is shaking it takes twice as long to do everything so getting out of my super tight workout pants did not seem like a wise decision in the face of potential fire....and the fact that the stairs are literally a 60-second jaunt from my front door. 

so I shoved on some flip flops grabbed my keys and celly and made my way out the door in my skin-tight pants and see-through shirt seriously praying that was not a real threat. 


I found myself in the hallway alone....had I been that slow getting things together? Oh no....apparently I'm the only one who took the blaring siren seriously.....as I hurried towards the stairs, people casually opened their doors to look out and then closed them again.Um, I don't think the flashing strobe lights mean they intend on turning our complex into a club....just a thought.

By the time I made it halfway to the steps, the alarm stopped. As I turned to go back I contemplated if I should pack an "emergency fire" bag to keep by the door....much like a pregnant woman's hospital bag....only minus the nipple pads and full-butt underwear.

The funniest thing......it's all on camera.

I came home from work today and purchased crazy renter's insurance because the thought of only having spandex pants to live in was extremely unsettling. 

But just in case you are wondering.....I will be wearing pants in the vlog ;)

But I'm on team "pants are over-rated".

If I could, I would walk around like Donald Duck all day long. No pants.

One of these occasions was because some "lovely intelligent" guy decided to dry his boxers on his lamp overnight... 1 why are your boxers wet and 2 why are you that stupid...
