Some Sleuthing

I've spent the past two hours trying to track down the source of a maddening and intermittent "beep" in the apartment. I checked the smoke detectors, but it wasn't them since they are hard wired and not battery. Finally, after shutting off absolutely everything that could possibly make noise, I followed the sound. Now that took a while since it only beeped every couple of minutes. Any idea how long one or two minutes can be when you are waiting for them to pass? Finally I tracked it down -- it was the church pager that I am babysitting while the pastor is away. It was the most maddening couple of hours I've spent in a while, but now all is quiet and I am back to the computer and the TV. Ah, technology!
