Write about a lesson you’ve learned the hard way.
Lesson: water and electricity do not mix
Age: about 5 years old
Outcome: I lived to tell about it
My brother, Dave, who is fifteen years older than me was working in the garage on his Ford Gran Torino. My parents had gone out for dinner, and Dave was baby-sitting. It was a warm, rainy evening. I used to love playing in the rain, so I was out in the driveway, in my sock-feet, splashing and running in the rain puddles. Dave and his friend Joe were in the garage using a power grinder on the car. They were on the opposite side of the car when I came back into the garage. I stood there in my sopping wet socks and turned to Dave, exclaiming, "Hey, my feet feel funny". Dave looked at me and then my feet and promptly told me to get off the extension cord. Apparently, the electricity was flowing through my socks and making my feet all tingly!
