  6. We were together in a restaurant when the 3pm alarm went off. By the sea, there were around 7 or 8 dogs sitting with their owners, under tables. The alarm caused the dogs to howl and bark. They took the matter very seriously: For protection:Thank You: Thank You: Thank You.

  7. After a pause and laughter, at a 101 Dalmatian's moment, everyone continued with their business. I thought of places in the world that do not currently hold peace, Ukraine and Myanmar for a start. When an alarm does not signify a brief moment of distraction.
