From the wiles of a stranger
If one's own kin and kith
Were more fun to be with.

Conversations in the Key of Mom IV
Sunday. 9.16.07 5:32 pm
I just learnt that my mother was actually in Jakarta at the time of the earthquake that occurred close to it last month. The earthquake had a magnitude of 7.5 so it was a little frightening to hear that. Looking back on our conversation, I can say with utter conviction that it’s best to absolutely forget about depending on her in times of emergency.

Describing her initial reaction to the shaking building

Mom: I could hear horrible creaking and I felt the whole building sway. And when I looked out the window, things were moving in and out of view at its edges. After about half a minute of this, I thought that I had better do something. So I called the reception desk.

Me: What?! Why didn’t you evacuate the building immediately?!

Mom: Oh, that would’ve been a little drastic, don’t you think?

On how she finally escaped to safety

Mom: So I walked out of the room and headed to the lifts.

Me: That’s dangerous! You were supposed to take the stairs!!

Mom: I did think about that. But with 16 floors between me and the ground, I decided that I would rather die comfortable in a lift than in a stairwell.

Nuttz: Only if you don't spray milk into my face.

Xboyz: Funny like this-milk-tastes-funny, I think you mean.

vincent: I'm keeping you away from her.

Paul: I need to get you a badge and stickers.

Fred: No shit! You guys felt it all the way in KL too? Hahaha, follow her la! See if you regret it when you're stuck in an elevator for 56 hours. You'll have to drink your own pee to survive.

Someones_Muse: They have their uses... :D

She knows how to handle a situation.
I can't decide if it's better to act like her, or panic and jump out the window.

:D

All 9 are still enjoying life under the shed. I'm going to play with them all later.
» Chloefoxx on 2007-09-16 04:12:03

that's funny in a "I'm glad she's okay and now that its over, looking back the reaction was funny" kind of way =P
» LostSoul13 on 2007-09-16 06:54:55

At least she knows how to go in style. :P
» randomjunk on 2007-09-16 10:03:10

middaymoon: I think both amounts to the same thing. Lol!

Chloefoxx: Life under the shed must be...stimulating.

LostSoul13: Haha yeah, I can't believe she waited a month to tell me though!

randomjunk: I'd rather she doesn't go at all! :D But she's just an attention-seeker, I think. Apparently she was the last one out of the hotel.
