Dear Erica Ryan,
What?? A huge earthquake is going to destroy San Francisco?
Thank you for this timely news. I am currently selling all my worldly possessions and I am buying a one-way bus ticket to Lake Ronkonkoma, NY. Do you think I could crash in your Earth Science classroom for a few months? Ask Mr. Visco if it is OK.
See you soon!
