Earthquake Friday

A fairly shaky, but remarkably short-lived earthquake shook the work trailer on Friday. At the HINT of a wiggle waggle in the earth, I, running on pure reflex, dove 1/2 way to the ground. With my butt still in the seat and both hands planted firmly on the ground, I realized the earthquake was over. So I hopped up, looked around asked my co worker, Scott, "was that an earthquake?" his response: "did you just fall to the ground?" No. No I didn't fall to the ground... I dove. Like the earthquake drill practiced Seattlelite I am. Plus I have a healthy respect for the Big Shaky and would much rather be safe under a large round table, than out in the open where the drop ceiling can tumble down upon me. I did, though, sustain a earthquake-fleeing injury. My coworkers, needless to say, did not.

When the big one hits you'll know where to find me.


  1. I knew I could always count on you :-)

    Nice thumb, by the way.

  2. why thank you, I've had it from birth.

  3. Did you know, that the "go under the doorframe thing" is a myth!?

    We have to get under a table. so you did good!
