Hand on short wall, waiting for balance to settle to stand.
What? The wall is moving? No, my nerves and balance are acting up. I’ll just wait.
My Pepsi is moving in my glass? I’m not touching the table. Others are looking around now too.
“Earthquake,” a comment from the side of the room.
I sat still, waiting for it end, took forever! Finally all was still again.
Hand on wall, not moving, I manage to stand this time.
