I Live In the Bay Area. And You Probably Don't (Part II)

So, there we were, sitting smugly at our desk (as we often do), thinking about how to survive the last hour and a half or so of our work week. The perpetually annoying construction noise below us seemed to intensify a bit (that's nothing new). Then things shook. Not wildly, but a little bit. A little side-to-side. A little office building mambo, if you will.
