What the heck?!

Don't judge me when I tell you this, but I have a strange desire to experience an earthquake. Not a big one, not one that does damage or hurts people, but I want to know what it feels like. Earthquakes have always been interesting to me. Such a strange phenomena to me.

It is weird I know, but one day I hope to feel one.

Now, I lived in Maryland for 14 years and now I live in Virginia. When you think of these places you don't think oh earthquakes happen there. Nope, thats Cali. I wake up today at 6:15 and get on facebook like normal (what you don't get on email and facebook before you get out of bed to pee? Maybe I need help.) EVERYONE on facebook is talking about an earthquake. I have a handful of friends in Cali, so I didn't think much, then I woke up and realized it was people from home! WHAT?!

There was a 3.7 earthquake about 40 miles from my parents house.  People where I used to live felt it. The people I work for felt it. Me? Oh I slept right through it, if we even felt it.

NOOOOO, this could have been my chance. Fail. Ha!

But seriously- how crazy is it that Maryland had an earthquake. Yikes.

I am linking up with Mama Kat's writers workshop

Mama's Losin' It


  1. I can't say that I share your longing to experience an earthquake, but if I were you - I'd feel robbed! Now everyone else has felt an earthquake and you - the person who actually WANTED to feel one missed out! As wierd as it sounds I feel bad that you missed it!

  2. Stopping by via Mama Kat's.
    Living in the midwest, it's easy to just think earthquakes happen "there" and not here, but I felt one once about 10 years ago. Scared the heck out of me -- I actually thought there was someone under my bed!

  3. Good post. I too am stopping by from Mama Kat's An earthquake is something that I would never like to encounter. Under any circumstances. There have been a few in India where I live in recent years and all I have to say is, keep me far away....
