After reading some of your comments on my last post, I feel the need to clarify slightly: Torsten didn't go out into the hall naked thinking that somehow Yohan just wouldn't notice him there in all his naked glory. Rather, he completely forgot that Yohan was there at all. Even though he's been there for two weeks. Which is worse? You decide. And then tell me, because I want to know what you think.
Also, an update: Yohan IMed me at work this morning to say that the fire alarm in the building was going off. At first I thought he meant that the smoke alarm was beeping again (because no, we didn't change the batteries, and that's because after all of Torsten's naked attempts as well as my clothed attempts, we were unable to remove the plastic cover from the smoke alarm). But no. It was the building fire alarm. I told Yohan how to find the nearest exit to the building. He came back an hour later and informed me that there were tons of firefighters all over the building, and that the building basement was now flooded with water and it appeared that the firefighters had broken down some walls.
Coincidentally, Yohan himself is a firefighter, or at least he will be starting in January; he finished his training in June and he starts with the Marseille Fire Department after the New Year. But I guess he didn't get to help out on this one. Apparently, whatever walls they broke down were not structurally necessary ones, because they let everyone back into the building.
Our smoke alarm has psychic powers, is the point here. It obviously knew what was coming. It tried to warn us, but we wouldn't listen. We were too busy flashing our houseguest and being vanquished by a tiny plastic cover.
