False alarm

Let me tell you, it is nice to know that the building fire alarms work, that the fire control system does indeed trigger the fans that pressurize the stairwells, that the LAFD will bring a ladder truck in ten minutes when summoned, and that the alarms will wake my neighbors and myself from sleep and spill them out into the street... And I really wouldn't want to be the poor head who triggered it all tonight by toking up in the first floor bathroom.

/Dating myself by using the term "head".
