Rumble Seat

Holy moly! I was sitting on my swivel chair, in my office, when the chair started to vibrate. It started out feeling more like a quiver, then turned into a strong vibration.

The next thing I heard was a rattle. When I turned around to look where the noise was coming from, I saw my printer doing the shimmy shake on it's stand. The whole vibrating, rattle thing lasted about 10 seconds. If I wasn't so unnerved, I may have enjoyed the vibrating chair. "What the heck is going on?", I said outloud to the wall.

Across the computer screen was a wide yellow band with large black letters on the band that said, WEATHER ALERT, "There has been an earthquake in Virginia that has reached as far north as NY and D.C."  Now there's a real butt slapper for ya'. An earthquake in this area. Great.

This whole shake, rattle, and roll experience made me realize how important it is not to postpone things you enjoy doing, so I decided to go out and buy a vibrating chair.

Sorry for the let down, lightly. I was starting to enjoy my chair, until I read the weather alert on my computer screen, heard the printer rattle and then watched it shimmy. Then I got a tad nervous.

It's great to hear from you. I miss your comments.

itsme, now I know how you got your name.

You're not used to snow and we're not used to earthquakes.

I did get a 10 second thrill, though.
