Our universe could be on a collision course with another universe right now all while sitting on the spinning electron of one of two hydrogen atoms bonded to an oxygen atom in a drop of water in a bucket on some guys porch.
OP, to answer your hypothetical question, I believe that as the oceans boiled off, large swathes of inland countryside would be chin deep in popcorn before we knew what was happening.

Yes, it's impossible...but this is what would happen.
We would only experience the first 10% of the ride to the sun...after which we would be fried. The Earth being only a little bit closer to the sun would cause our temperature to rise...and I'm talking more than a few degrees. We would probably be able to breathe long enough to see all of the ice on Earth to melt, flooding most large cities.
If you live a few hundred feet above sea level...celebrate because you get to live long enough to get choked out by the massive fires that will begin to occur around the world. Plants will be dried up and forest fires will engulf the planet.
Once the Earth is about 10% closer, all surface life on Earth would be dead. Bacteria would survive a little bit longer...but once the water on earth is vaporized entirely, they'll be gone too.
