Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On

Last week I had a call at work from Penelope. We've had a lot of construction around our house, and the building's been banging around as earth-movers and pile-drivers and such go about their work. She complained that there had been a really big bang, so big that the whole house shook and Telemachus had almost lost his footing in the shower.

When she went out to see what had happened, she discovered that no work was being done around us. The construction crew had moved up the street about quarter-mile to upgrade the water and sewer.

At first, I was worried that somehow all the construction had destabilized my house. Then a friend sent me this.

It's worse than I thought. They've destabilized THE ENTIRE PLANET!
