Do you remember the last time I tried to electrocute myself? Good, because I have another one to add to the list. (maybe I should start keeping count on the sidebar)

Yesterday the neighbor from across the way borrowed our trailer to go pick up a mower. When he gets back, he unloads it in our driveway. He needs to jump it and has a flat. As he used our equipment to charge it, I went to plug the compressor in. Nothing happened when I plugged it in. Usually it makes a horrible racket as it fills itself with air, this time silence. So I went over to it, leaned over the back side, and touched the metal backing with both hands. The charge went through me so hard it took a few moments to get my hands away from it.

I stood there in the drive staring at my throbbing hands. My neighbor looked at me oddly and asked if I was ok. I told him what happened. Now here would be where my husband would giggle, but the neighbor was concerned. He asked again if I was ok.

I replied,

I'm a girl, I want to cry.

Glad you're okay, Phelan. Electricity doesn't like me either. Nasty stuff. May we never be in proximity to each other during a lightning storm.

Ouch! Cry, scream, fall on the ground, all appropiate!

Ouch! I'm glad you were okay...I just HATE that feeling! If they ever want to execute me, it's lethal injection all the way! (I'm not planning any heinous crimes, BTW :)
