Shake Shake Shake . . .

Apparently I was the only one in the office who read the memo.

On Oct. 21 at 10:21am the second annual Great California ShakeOut earthquake drill took place.  And just like earthquake drills back in grammar school, you were supposed to "Drop, Cover, and Hold On!"

So at 10:21am a voice came over the public address system in the office alerting everyone that we were to drop and cover.

Yet, somewhere between age 12 and "adulthood" people become too cool to look stupid getting under their desk to practice earthquake safety.

I have no shame.  I was the only one who actually dropped and covered in my area of the office.

Here's the deal.  I lived through the Northridge earthquake of 1994.  I was thrown off the top bunk of my bed at 4:31am.  I still remember it like it was yesterday.  I don't care how stupid I looked.

  1. Here's my question - why were you in a bunk bed at the age of 20?

  2. It was a futon couch on the bottom. Not that that makes it any better.
