        Would you believe if I told you that I slept right through an earthquake?
        I found all about it the next day morning. Well written take, Fandango

          Thanks, Varad. It must have been a relatively small earthquake that you slept through. Or you’re a very heavy sleeper!

            Yes. It was not a big one. But there were strong tremors that was felt by the whole city. People were standing on the streets for a couple of hours. Maybe the tremors rocked me to a sound sleep 😀

              In my last earthquake I was awakened by the rattling of the windows in my bedroom and that’s when I noticed that my bed was vibrating. It was scary.

      If so, low sperm count was the last thing he should have been worried about!
