Friday morning I woke up to find the sad news of the earthquake in Japan and the tsunami that followed. My phone rang about half a hour later. It was my housemate’s girlfriend, asking me to wake him up to warn him about the tsunami warning for Nicaragua.
“Um, you know that is from an earthquake that happened in Japan, right?” I asked her.
“Yes, it was a big one,” she said. “And now the country is under a tsunami warning!”
“Yeah but, Japan is very far away. Not to mention, in the Pacific.”
“Oh.” “Okay, well, just let him know when he wakes up.”
“Will do. Bye!”
