HOW I SURVIVED AN EARTHQUAKE

MANIC MONDAY - QUAKE
I was laying on the beach, the sun was shining, it was warm and I felt so good ! I heard the sound of the waves and became very sleepy. Suddenly something heavy dropped on my belly and the ground under me started to quake. Fear came over me I tried to open my eyes but I couldn't ! I hardly could breath, I panicked and sat up.
It was dark around me, and I shivered. Suddenly I realized that I wasn't laying on a beach, but I was sitting on my bed in my room ! I switched on the light and saw cat Arthur sitting on my belly and scratching himself vigorously ! He had jumped on my belly so that I thought a rock hit me and his scratching made my bed shaking like with an earthquake ! That at least was what I imagined because I never experienced one.
Very relieved I fell back on my pillows and pushed my nearly 7 kg (15 lbs) heavy cat from my belly. The earthquake stopped immediately and a very offended cat disappeared through the door !
