Another five minutes went by before everyone slowly got up, grabbed their coats and snacks, and waddled out into the fucking freezing cold.
The fire trucks came and it was all super exciting, except no one noticed because they were all busy continuing business via their phones. Someone shouted, "WHO WAS LOOKING FOR THAT CORSET?" over the sirens.
Then the trucks left, the crowd ambled back in, and 14/48 went on.
As for the cause? I am not sure what it was that set off the alarm.... though I did hear a rumor about smoky sandwiches in the kitchen.
