Sleeping through the Friday night earthquake was a blessing. Waking up to the ‘nightmare’ some people imagined about the earthquake, was not.
“There was a sudden sharp snap and the whole house shook it felt like the roof was going to coming crashing down on us,” was one frightened account by someone who was awake.
The thought of having the roof crush the breath out of you or even worse as you sleep was scary. What horror.
But did you have to hear it? You had a great night’s rest. Woke up to a whole new day, refreshed and all set to challenge the world.
The horror story dropped and suddenly the excitement of starting a new day vanishes in the story telling.
To all you storytellers of the Friday night earthquake, next time keep your tales of terror to yourself.
“….good luck stopping the teller of tales, dear.
