Temple Shock

This is what I like to call The Home Version of Electroshock Therapy –

Put on headphones. On a long cord, they can reach anywhere in the office.

Forget that I’m wearing rubber-soled shoes. (Rubber-ish, anyway — at least enough to matter).

Scruff, scruff across the carpet. Owwww. Zap. Owwww. Zap. The static electricity zorches out right through my earlobes and into the phones.

Whatever made us think that coming down from the trees was a good idea?
