After a great time in Disneyworld, we were feeling happy.
We left Orlando with the kids and overnighted in Miami.
At four in the morning, we heard the hotel’s fire alarm sound.
Shouts of ‘Fire! Fire! and shuffling of feet on the ground.
The sound of the fire alarm and guests shouting made us panic.
We jumped out of our beds and grabbed each passport and ticket.
Left all luggage in the room and ran down the steep fire escape.
Found everyone staring at us and feeling like we were in a daze.
They said it was a false alarm but they kept staring at us.
It dawned on me we were in nightwear and not yet dressed.
My children hid behind me in my flimsy nightie.
Later, they said they were able to see through it clearly.
That incident was not funny but embarrassing.
We left for the airport immediately after dressing.
