Two of my friends buy lunch at Dairy Queen every day, but there's no way I can afford that, so I bring lunch from home and go along with them. Yesterday as we were walking back to campus before last period, we see several hundred students milling around in the middle of the bus loop. Was it a fire drill? They usually had those first period.
We asked someone what was going on. Turns out there had been a real fire in one of the buildings. After the administration had determined it was safe, everyone who wasn't at lunch went back to class, and we wandered around outside for another ten minutes. Yay: less class. During afternoon announcements, our principal said someone had set fire to a trash can in the boys' bathroom, and there was a 100 dollar reward for any information.
Today as we're throwing away our trash, I make some joke about how "Haha, how much you want to bet there's been another fire?" It wasn't so funny when we returned to campus and saw another fire truck.
Boys' bathroom. Trash can. Different building.
I'm just glad this is happening while I'm at lunch in case something goes wrong and no one notices until things get out of hand. Not that there's much flammable stuff in the bathroom, but...
