Second Episode of the WannabeHippie Getting Prepared
After Mark, Elaine and the kids experienced a simulated earthquake in the Big Shaker, they admitted they weren’t ready for it, and need to get something taken care of.
Back at the ranch, Sue shows the girls what to do if an earthquake hits while they’re in bed. It’s so easy, they just need to put their pillows over their heads like a helmet, while the ground is shaking and stay like that until it’s stopped for good. After the shaking is all done, they should stay where they are until their parents come get them.
But Mark and Elaine are doing it wrong in the earthquake drill. They think they should immediately go run for the girls, while the ground is shaking away. Nope, nope, Sue tells them – if you run, you could get hurt by falling debris, and then who’d take care of the girls? Stay where you are, and drop to the ground, under a table if there is one, put your arms around your heads, and find something to hold on to until the shaking stops.
As they song goes…what song? You know the most amazing earthquake song EVAR, “Don’t move until the shaking stops!”
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! Sue then gives them all Red Cross Go Bags, one for each of them, and a special one made just for Maya. Who’s a good puppy? Who deserves her own pet earthquake kit? You can learn to make one as well for your best friend.
