So there was an earthquake last night at the California/Mexico border, and many people felt it clear up in Orange County, where I am. And definitely felt it - it was more than just a little shimmy.
So I of course happened to be naked during the quake.
Okay, couldn't resist. All of that is true, but the fact is, I was in the shower and didn't notice a thing. I did hear people suddenly get loud, but I'm in a hotel by a pool and assumed it was just rowdiness.
I heard about it today. Apparently my hotel room was in a sweet spot, because I'm told things moved and fell, and even the iron on top of the room's rickety ironing board didn't move. Nothing in my room fell.
Happily, there are no reports of injuries.
I'm hoping I've beaten the odds for being naked or in some other compromising situation when a quake hits.
Not sure what a survivalist would do to stay prepared for an earthquake while in the bathroom...
