I'm an authority on earthquakes so let me answer your questions. First, an aftershock is an aftershock until another aftershock occurs. Earthquakes occur only once unless the earthquake quakes the earth longer than an aftershock which then makes it a fore shock. Fore shock's, middle shocks and shock absorbers are usually found in the frozen food section of your local hen house. I hope I have helped you all!

It appears that a "short period of time" is subjective to time itself.
