#AprilWritingChallenge – Day 11 – I was shocked when…

I was shocked when I tried to think of the last time I was genuinely shocked about something and couldn’t think of one. People who know me well know how even keel and relaxed I am when it comes to unexpected events. I’m very patient and very stoic when it comes to most things.

But in a more literal sense, the last time I was shocked was years ago when 9 volt batteries were still prevalent in electronics. This young curious and fearless lad decided to put his tongue over the two terminals on a fresh battery I had and you bet your sweet Aspercreme I felt an electric shock.

Honestly, I was more shocked that I didn’t suddenly gain Raiden-esque super powers after that little transfer of electrons. I thought, “Why do all the other kids get dope powers from benign things? Life is so unfair.”

Mad sad faces, yo.
