This morning I woke up as a 5.7 earthquake rocked my bunk bed – only I just thought someone was attempting to crawl up onto the upper bunk. I sleepily ignored the rocking and tried to return to sleep – until some annoying sirens gave a couple of loud wails from the school next door. Still being unable to connect the dots, I tried to puzzle out the meaning of sirens – but since they only went twice and then ceased, I put it out of mind and tried once again to return to dreamland. 5 minutes later I was once again awakened by the buzzing of my alarm. I didn’t even remember the strangely rocking bunk bed that had woke me earlier and proceeded to get ready for the day. As Rahel and I headed out to catch a jeepney, she asked if I had woken up during the earthquake. Earthquake? And suddenly all the dots got lines between them. Apparently nobody had been trying to occupy the top bunk on my bed.
