I never lived on the West Coast or visited the area until I was twenty-five years old.
I met a girl in college and we dated for 2 years.
After we graduated, she wanted to go back home to the West Coast. I wasn’t in love with the idea of going back home to the Midwest, so I agreed to join my girlfriend and her hometown. The weather was a lot different and it was hot all of the time. We used the air conditioner every single day. It was impossible to open the windows for fresh air, because the air was so hot and uncomfortable. Another thing that bothered me was earthquakes. I never felt an earthquake until I moved to the West Coast with my girlfriend. One day I was sitting at the house watching television when the whole house started to shake suddenly. Everything on the walls fell to the ground. All of the pictures were broken. The brand new air conditioner that I installed a few days previously fell out of the window and broke. My girlfriend was at work when the earthquake occurred. She called me on the phone when it was over. I told her about the damage to the AC unit and she didn’t seem surprised. The air conditioner was $300, but she acted like I said it was a painting of a tree from a hotel. She assured me that the air conditioner would be fine, and then she said this kind of thing can happen from time to time when you live on a fault line.
