I had a co-worker stop by my office this morning to discuss the tsunami that ,at the time, was coming from the Japan earthquake heading for the U.S.
She asked me if I thought it would affect the Gulf of Mexico. I could only sit there slack-jawed. I could not believe that someone would think that there was a straight shot from the Pacific Ocean to the gulf. I explained to her that there is a land mass called Mexico and Central America between the two bodies of water. "Oh," she said and walked away.
The mind reels.
