My first earthquake

No sir, I don't like it. o.0

I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later. For me, it happened in the middle of a job interview on the 10th floor of a building overlooking the 405 Freeway and Galleria mall. Fun times. As my prospective employer and I huddled beneath a doorframe, he remarked that I was handling my first earthquake rather well. My reply was that now he could see I work well under pressure. I hope it at least made me memorable.

Whew, I'm glad you weren't hurt. I thought of you right away when I saw the headlines..

Thanks Scoob. Luckily this was not a big quake in the grand scheme of things. The worst damage done was when waterpipes cracked and leaked in several structures, but that was the worst of it. The scary part was wondering how long it was going to last and if the shaking would get worse. If it weren't for all of the scary danger stuff, it would have been fun. o.0
