Chuck Tribolet: "I'll take earthquakes, thank you."
This is so funny, cause it reminds me of something.
When I first moved to LA from Chicago, people here would say to me "Earthquakes are no big deal, but how can you people live out there with all those tornadoes?"
Meanwhile, people back home would say "Tornadoes are nothing, how can you live in LA with all those earthquakes?"
Have to admit, I was never overly bothered by either. Quite the contrary! When there was tornado weather back home, I would go driving around looking to spot one.
When I felt my first earthquake here, I immediately got on the phone to my parents with a "Guess what?!" call. (My officemate was looking at me to see if I was scared, and was surprised that I was excited.)
Woo hoo! :)
