I was sitting at my desk checking messages on my phone when my chair started shaking. At first, I thought my chair was wobbly but the shaking was rhythmic. It was a side to side movement that was gentle and definitely perceptibly.
Something caused me to look in the direction of the table lamp. Without a doubt, the shade was shaking. No mistake about it.
Maybe the breeze is stronger than I think it is, I say to myself. But no, the leaves on the trees aren’t moving. Not as much as my chair is.
I looked at my watch. How long has this been? Could this be an earthquake?
