This was me Friday morning.
The door to mine and Kevin´s room closes with a lever, one on the inside and one on the outside. When the one on the inside is closed no one can enter from the outside and vice versa for the outside. Well Friday morning Kevin had class at regular time, but I didn´t have to be there until 11, so I decided to sleep in. When Kevin left in the morning around 7:30 he didn´t think twice about closing the lever on the outside. I didn´t think about it either, until I tried to leave at about 10:15. When I realized what had happened I started to go into panic mode. How in the world was I going to get out? I tried yelling for Hermana Nareda (our house mama), but she couldn´t hear me since our room is on the roof. I then tried to see if I could wiggle through the bathroom window.

As you can see in the picture, my head barely fits through! Imagine if I got stuck there and no one could hear my cries for help! AAAhhhh! Finally I realized there was a small hole in the door which I could fit one finger through. I leaned against the door while I used my finger to move the lever over and found myself free at last! I barely made it to school on time, but there´s nothing like a little panic to get your heart pumping in the morning!
