Earthquake

I woke up at about 8:20 this morning to feel my bed shaking. I thought I was just jiggling my leg nervously in the semi-asleep state that i was in. At the time I thought it was a little unsettling quite how much my bed was rocking. I consciously jiggled my leg, and the bed kept wobbling – convincing me for a moment about cause and effect. I stopped jiggling my leg, and the bed stopped shaking.

After becoming more awake I thought how my bed must be close to collapse if it could move that much, and by that time I was talking online to a friend asking me if I had felt the earthquake. Phew. Nice to know my bed’s not falling to pieces!
