Shake, Rattle and Roll...

I got a message on my phone today..."Hi Babe, there's been an earthquake, but not to worry, everything is okay, Mabes and I are fine."

This is not a call I was expecting to get, and yet all my L.A. friends had told me that it would be just a matter of time. Jeff had been lying on the floor reading when all of sudden he felt a shake and thought to himself "Bloody subway!" And then, "Wait a minute, there's no subway?!" And then..."Jesus, the whole building is moving!" He heard bottles fall off the fridge in the kitchen, and Mabel came out of her bed and curled up in his lap as they waited for the shaking to stop. Crazy. His first L.A. earthquake. Thankfully everyone is alright. As my friend Terry, (who had prepped us about what to do in the event of an earthquake), put it..."Congratulations, your first earthquake. Just enough to get your feet wet, but hopefully not enough to scare you." As for me, my feet are dry...and I'd really like to keep them that way.
