for those of you who may not know, a 5.8 earthquake shook the east coast tuesday afternoon — as an east-coaster this was something i never thought would happen. hurricane irene, yes…an earthquake, no. while we felt nothing out here in nashville many of my friends and family in NC experienced their first (and what i hope will be their last) earthquake.
after receiving word of the quake i was more than eager to chat with two of my best friends who happened to be on g-chat. what follows are two golden nuggets from my conversations with chelsea and kelly that left me grinning and snickering the rest of the afternoon…
me: um, earthquake?
chelsea: what the heck
me: did you feel it?
i was in my car
and the guy on the radio was like whoa
we just felt this place shake during that last song
and i literally thought he meant it was like
a powerful song that metaphorically rocked him.
i proceeded to copy/paste the above text to send to kelly…
me: oh my gosh — this just made me laugh so hard.
i literally will be laughing for days
knowing that makes me miss u bc i can hear your laugh and the way you wipe your eyes bc the laugh induced crying…
i love my friends.
