The exact same thing happened to me last night, only I didn't run to buy the shirt. All I could think about is why they can't make smoke detectors that know what time it is so they only beep during the day or only flash a white LED light. Then I started thinking about it on a whole new level, where the smoke detector symbolized a bird because it "chirps" combined with Edgar Allen Poe.
I was not so weak and weary, when I woke up from my dreaming,
by the smoke detector noises, just outside the bedroom door.
The noise that it was making, was horrific silence breaking
and it angered me such chirping, chirping did not wait for morn.
As I stood upon a ladder, my situation made me madder,
so I grabbed the smoke detector, and then smashed it on the floor.
"Stupid Low Voltage", I shouted, to the pieces on the floor.
Now it shall wake me, Nevermore.
(but I may die in a fire, like Lenore)
