Secret Newlywed Behaviors: There's NO Fire in the Kitchen!

Happy Monday Ladies!
Welcome to another lovely week.
Here's what i am thinking this morning...

I don't think Mr. Pancakes married me solely for my cooking...
thank goodness because i am not the greatest cook in this part of the country.  
Don't get me wrong, i can throw down if i need too 
but i would probably lose in a cooking contest.  
Really though the only person that needs to enjoy my cooking is Mr. Pancakes and he usually does. 

Needless to say, i was cooking up a storm over the weekend.  
I had three burners going including the stove. 
 I was doing my thing.  
When all of a sudden i heard this noise...

beep, Beep, BEEP!!!!!

What? Huh?

And then i heard a female voice say:

fire, Fire, FIRE!!!

Huh? 
What fire?
 And who said that?

Come to find out our fire alarm system speaks
 and she says, "fire, Fire, FIRE!!!"

Apparently even when there is NO fire.

Seriously, i know i said i was a bad cook...  
But that fire alarm system lady was lying when she repeatedly said, "fire, Fire, FIRE!!!

I haven't burnt anything while cooking in such a long time...
and was completely upset by the lady's harsh and incessant comments.

Maybe my stove was a little dirty and giving out fumes that smelled like smoke 
BUT as a newlywed i have not burned anything in the kitchen.  
And i am proud to say, "there's NO fire in the kitchen."
The only fire in my house is the one between the hubby and i, thank you very much fire alarm lady!

Because if i had burnt anything since becoming a newlywed
 (usually because im not in the kitchen)...
i would have confessed it before as a secret newlywed behavior.  
Really, i would!

Does your fire alarm system speak?
And if so...is yours a she?

(She totally freaked me out!)

Ha ha mines doesn't speak but I'm sure that was a crazy experience. This is such a funny story especially how you described hearing the female's voice and saying "I haven't burnt anything while cooking in such a long time". But I'm glad it wasn't a fire. Well at least in the kitchen...Keep the flames burning between you and the hubby!

Faith said...

Oh goodness gracious, i would freak out if i heard my fire alarm speak, lol. But no, my fire alarm does not speak. It is just very annoying. If there is a little smoke the whole house is burning down. I'm like seriously. My fire alarm is like the boy who cried wolf. How am I ever going to believe it if there is truly a fire?! ahhh.

I burned white rice a few weeks ago. I was pissed, haha.

I don't think our fire alarm speaks, I changed the battery in one this weekend and it does beep. Its that incessant constant beep when the battery needs to change. I think I would prefer if it spoke. Then perhaps it could say "battery needs changing, battery needs changing" instead of that annoying constant short beep every few minutes that you're never able to pinpoint which fire alarm if came from because the minute you stand under one it seems like it was coming from the one you just left standing under....arrrghh! Lol!

Nellie said...

LOL - I would tell that smoke detector a thing or two! What an advanced lil device you got there! ha!

I didn't get your email darling, did u email me at nellie@brooklynactivemama.com?

Heather said...

LOL -- We have an alarm system that beeps and speaks, but ours is a male voice. It freaks me out whenever they test it!

Lauren said...

haha! Ours just beeps incessantly...and I've had a few times when the oven got a tad bit too hot and when I opened the oven door the fumes set of our alarm! Thankfully it hasn't ever meant completely burning anything!

Optimistic Mom said...

Too funny! Our fire alarm is linked to our alarm system and it will send for the fire dept if we don't respond to it.
I fear that one day they will show up because of too much smoke or steam in the kitchen. lol
Glad to hear there wasn't a fire in your kitchen. ;)

sherri lynn said...

Wow I've never heard of a voice telling you there's a fire! haha glad to hear there wasn't actually one though :)

CC [AKA Frugalista] said...

You got yelled at by your fire alarm!! Too funny. Nope mine doesn't speak. I didn't know they had any that did.

TiAnna Mae said...

I don't think mine speaks, but I don't know. That would've freaked me out too!

Melissa said...

Hahaha, I laughed the whole time while reading this!!! I didn't know fire alarms could speak!? And what's even worse, she was telling LIES! Lol

Ria @ Life as a Wife! said...

Oh my goodness too funny... Ours doesn't talk. But I have burnt a LOT lately, especially being pregnant... ha! Love it!

Hannah {Culture Connoisseur} said...

Lol... you have a Jetsons home! I've never heard of that before. Talk about a panic!

Sunshine Blossoms said...

I would have totally freaked out! Hearing a random voice in your house AND having it yelling "FIRE!" would scare the crap out of me! lol... Glad it turned out okay, though.

Mrs. Julius said...

Miss Amy said...

CRAZY and also kinda nice....if there WAS a real fire!! mine doesn't speak, but it does have a siren so loud, I'd be surprised if it didn't resonate into outer space!

Nicole said...

LOL this totally made me giggle! I don't know what I'd do if this voice came out of nowhere! No, mine is just a beep...no talking ceilings for me!

Married...with a Pup said...

LOL, thankfully my does not go crazy! However, Brutus HATES smoke so whenever things get a little, ehhem, burnt in our kitchen Brutus rings the bell to go outside to get away from the smoke, haha!

AdamAlexMommy said...

You are hilarious. I think I totally would be annoyed more than freaked out, especially when I am in bed and I heard this. :)

Ashley said...

Monique said...

wow how modern we just have an old school beeping one which is pretty annoying. we have to wave the broom in front of it some times.

Vanisha @ Vanisha's Life In...Australia said...

I would have freaked out completely! Our fire alarm just beeps, thank goodness!

Cam | Bibs and Baubles said...

Bravoe Runway said...

I am not sure if my fire alarm has a female or male voice. In my condo I have an electric stove and fingers crossed we've not had a fire in my building. Glad to hear everything is ok!

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

Hahahahah! Okay, I confess that I have burned an item (or two) on the stove. However, my fire alarm doesn't speak! It just beeps very loudly and annoyingly! :) Your fire alarm is so awesome!

Marian said...

Oh my goodness, I would have been a tad freaked out....but at the same time, I kind of want some sort of fire alarm like that
