In Which I Get Conflicting Advice

While at the hospital for Baby Badass last week, I saw a sign posted next to a fire extinguisher and a fire alarm. I felt that it gave some conflicting advice about something you'd typically want to be pretty clear about:

In case of fire, hot odor, or smoke, I'm supposed to stay calm and RACE? That's like asking someone to use the toilet quietly after eating an entire Taco Bell Taco Twelve Pack with an ipecac chaser.

While I didn't really understand the logic behind the hospital's fire awareness plan, I did very much appreciate the tile work in the bathroom attached to our tiny hospital room. It was like someone shook a Tetris game and some of the pieces broke up into fragments, but the object of the game hadn't changed. 

I don't know about you, but if someone were to create this version of Tetris, I'd be all over it.

Hot odor? I've never heard of that term before. At any rate, that is a funny sign. Hope the little one is doing well.

You could think of nothing but Tetris when you look at this. Must be the purpose...that's it, yeah, that's it. When there is a fire just run!

that wall makes me dizzy!

Stanthrax: My first thought on the hot odor thing? Farts.

Chuck: Seriously.

Amy: It was hard to look at for very long.
