An update to the impossible

You may recall this recent post, where I revealed the existence of my new electrical powers.  I am … well, not proud, really, more confused— to announce that not only have I continued to shock myself on that goddamn piece of furniture (and nothing else in the store) but that I managed to deliver an electrical shock to a customer today by handing him an invoice.  The shock traveled over the piece of paper; our hands did not touch.

I am terrified to touch one of our power sofas, which actually do run on electricity.  I’m starting to think I might die if I do.

Five days since the tooth removal, and I’ve still had barely a second of pain at any point, which blows my mind.  I just said this in a comment a month ago, but if dental surgery had always been this easy, no one would be afraid of going to the dentist.  I’m blown away at how lucky I got.

  1. Now I’m reminded of the “Family Guy” episode with the footie pajamas, where Peter told Lois that he thought he might be Jesus. He spent much of the episode wearing a blanket cape, giggling, and zapping people.

    Use your powers for good, my friend.


  2. I have spent more time than I care to admit trying to figure out how to write out Peter’s weird little giggle in normal English letters and I am not able to do so.



  3. Congrats on your continuing pain free toothlessness.

    So, you gonna have a superhero name now? … like Captain Zapp, or Luther ‘Letric, or … c’mon people, help me out here. 🙂
