|“Ground’s nervous. Got milk?’|
If I were living in California, I could un’erstan’ yesterday’s news. I even ‘Get It’ that in the area of the New Madrid fault, tremors were felt in the recent past. The land shakes in places such as Japan an’ it’s not a real shocker. That’s not to say I am lacking in compassion. I’m only stating that some areas tend to get what I sometimes call “Nervous Jitters” on a somewhat regular basis. Naturally, when reports of nervous jitters come from those a’ready jittery states an’ countries, it does take a bit of the edge off the ‘surprise factor,’ .
I live in the Dakotas; an area where we’ve learned to trust the stability of things an’ kinda’ expect ’em to sit still an’ remain calm. Nothing nervous around here… usually. Yesterday, that changed in the blink of an eye. No injuries or damage of any kind, but all at once, there was a loud ‘BOOM!’ Evidently, the ground became frightened because it began to tremble an’ shake. Not for long, to be sure. Still, it makes a person a little uneasy to know that solid ground is showing signs of fear. It also makes me wonder what I’m s’posed to do with alla’ this quivering that has begun in my tummy an’ seems to be extending throughout my whole being. Any suggestions for making the land feel calm? I wonder if a nice glass of milk poured over the ‘epicenter’ would ease the tension?

Until the next calm, keep a hug on.
