I had a different post planned.
But, breaking news on the TV
Greeted me as I woke up.
Earthquakes, fires, Tsunamis, evacuations, warnings, alerts
I wonder what to tell him.
He is such a worry wart.
He worries about meteors hitting Earth.
He says he won’t ever fly.
I told him so he wouldn’t
hear about “tsunamis hitting Oregon” at
school and freak himself out worrying.
We are far from the coast.
100’s of miles, two mountain ranges
between us and the tsunami danger.
But he will not know that.
So I armed him with knowledge
and sent him on his way.
