Why does the carbon monoxide detector have to chirp in the middle of the night when carbon monoxide isn't leaking into the room? Why am I the only one who can find three double A batteries in the junk drawer? Why can we not just wait until daylight to tend to it, maybe we could take the old batteries out and ignore it for a while, you think? Why did I bite my tongue trying to avoid swallowing my vitamin C while have a coughing spell. Why am I up now when I could be sleeping?
