Earthshattering News

Hardly.

I forgot to tell mention that I felt the Illinois earthquake last week.

As you know, I went to bed at 1:30 Friday morning, after having a couple glasses of wine. Usually when this happens, I wake up sometime between 4 and 5 a.m. completely parched.

So at 4:37 a.m., I was not surprised to find myself awake. I did find it odd that my bed was vibrating a little (like a truck driving on a bridge made of wood slats). And in my haze, the only thing that made sense was that the motor in the ceiling fan was going nuts. So I got up, turned off the fan, got a glass of water and returned to bed — to find that it wasn’t shaking any more.

Obviously my assessment of the ceiling fan was correct — so I thought.

You can imagine my surprise when I turned on the morning news to learn that I’d experienced an earthquake. Who knew my first (and hopefully only) one would be in Chicago?
