Message I Left On My Parents' Answering Machine While Standing In A Doorway During An Earthquake

Hi Mom and Dad, I don't know where you are but if you're listening to this, don't pick up. Stand in a doorway. Either the house is falling down or we're having an earthquake. It feels like an earthquake because the house is shaking so just stand in the doorway until the shaking stops. If you're not there, then call me when you get home. Because we're having an earthquake.

[Apparently, the folks were out on the town and did not even feel the earthquake that had their daughter panicked and alone in the house--they did not feel it to the extent that they questioned, Do you think it could have been one of those large construction trucks maybe working nearby? Nice.]
