SoSG EK and I are standing in a field in front of an apartment building. We're looking up at a cell-phone tower. (It doesn't look like a traditional cell-phone tower, but somehow I know that's what it is.) The tower is swaying in the wind.
"Think it's going to fall?" I joke to EK. And sure enough, it dramatically collapses and falls down away from us, ending up across a road. Passing cars narrowly miss it.
We start running toward the apartment building while I try to call 911 on my iPhone. Despite the cell-phone tower being down, I still get some kind of reception (Apple product placement in my dreams!). However, instead of reaching a 911 operator, I keep getting other people trying to call 911, describing their own predicaments.
I'm alone now. Somehow I make my way up to the top of the building. I'm climbing through a window onto the roof when I notice Manny Ramirez is in front of me. He's standing on a glass or clear plastic platform. Then in the distance, a rumbling starts. An earthquake rumble. Manny is completely unperturbed.
"Hey Manny, you better get off there," I tell him.
"That's all right, man, I'll be fine," he says.
"No really, that doesn't look safe—"
Across the roof I see SoSG Sax on a platform of some sort. A whole bunch of loose house doors are leaning against the wall next to him, and they're starting to fall down because of the earthquake —
