Chance has been enjoying island life, though he really does spend most of his days learning the Mandarin language. He has some great friends and his older brother was sent a clip of Chance and his roommate doing some awesome dance moves.
Chance even got to hang out in the wee hours of the night in the parking lot of the dorms where he is staying. Apparently, the fire alarm went off in the middle of the night and so the dorms had to be evacuated. Chance being deaf and all, did not hear the alarms going off, so his faithful roommate tried to wake Chance up.
Chance, in his deep state of sleep, thought that his roommate was trying to wake him up to go running because a few of the kids have been getting up early and running around campus. Naturally, Chance could not hear what his roommate was saying, so he just kept telling him that he did not want to get up and run today.
When his roommate persisted in waking him up, Chance apparently got more adamant about his non desire to get up and run. When the roommate still kept trying to arouse him, Chance yelled that he didn't want to get up and run. Somehow, Chance's roommate managed to wake Chance up enough to tell him that they had to leave the building.
Chance eventually found himself in the parking lot and figured out what was going on. Firemen checked over the building and the kids were eventually allowed to go back inside.
Chance and his roommate are still friends and I think the roommate deserves a medal for persisting on waking Chance up and getting him outside even when Chance was cranky and ungrateful. What are the odds that you get a deaf roommate and the fire alarm goes off in the middle of the night and you have to wake him up and convince him that he has to evacuate?
What are the odds that you would fly to Hawaii and get jousted from your bed in the middle of the night due to a fire alarm?
Well, Chance made it out safe and he is still on good terms with his roommate. I have a special love for his roommate now, he made sure Chance got out and I am grateful.
Chance is still in Hawaii so life is still going pretty good for him. And the odds that the fire alarm will go off again, have got to be slim to none. Which is good news for both Chance and his roommate.
