Mood icon says it all

I took a ride across town earlier to christen my new jacket. Even with that and gloves and a little thing on my head, I was COLD as a witch's nip. At least my face and hands were, anyway. My spark plug wire came loose again on one of the cylinders, and I realized it about when I got up to the main road. I was jiggling with the wires where they came from the coil and SHAZAAM I got the fillings zapped right out of my teeth. Them coils will wake you up in the night. Even through my leather gloves I heard and felt this big booming POP!! as I got hit. but I managed to reseat the wire in place and I was off.

I haven't decided what to do with tomorroww yet..

I'm sure tomorrow will be electrifying.

So your steel labret spike didn't start emitting smoke when this happened?

I read somewhere on RAB that good-quality jewelry is a poor conductor. Probably ballwash, but I'll accept it on face value anyway. I guess I'm lucky my head wasn't anywhere near my handlebars or maybe I wouldn't have to shave for awhile.

Instead I think the spark went through my hand, down and across my crotch, and out my other leg on the pavement..
