&(*@#$@+(*!!!!!!!!!

Say what you want about humidity, but at least on a warm humid day like today, dripping with moisture, I’m not a walking, talking, cursing static conductor. I have been static free for days which is so much better than getting zapped every time I touch my car door or some sweater-wearing-feet-dragging-carpet-walking co-worker .

I hate getting zapped. I just don’t like being that awake...especially at work.

I'll take zaps anytime over the "30 seconds from straight to 'fro" trick my hair does on dripping wet days like today. Or I could leave my hat on ;0).

I actually love humidity. It's so much better for my skin!

I thought it was always humid in Beaumont, but then I've only been there in the summer. BTW, you must be blessed with naturally straight hair.

Laurie said...

Jaded - Hahahaha! Wear that hat, girl.

Alyson - Absolutely! It's also better for my nose. After two days in Vegas...well, let's just say, it ain't purty.

40 Forever - It is definitely ALWAYS humid in the summer. However, in the winter, we get a few low humidity days. Regarding the hair, yep, straight as a board.

You should see my dogs faces when I accidentally zap them! I don't have carpeting, either. But they don't understand (or trust me)when I tell them that I really didn't do it to them on purpose.

Laurie said...

Abshid - Hahahaha! "Here, puppy, puppy, puppy...mommy loves you...ZAP!" Poor puppies. The evil person inside me, finds that amusing. :)

Heh. I'm with you, Laurie! I was out running errands one of those cold days and the car door shock was starting to get painful! I started closing the door by touching the window only.

My cousin, who lives near Dallas, told me that her little Pekingese has a static 'fro, and is very confused by it!

HUMIDITY?!

i practically don't even know the word..

It is so dry here.. i get zapped everyday in winter everytime i touch someone or close a car's door.

when it rains, it stays humid for like 2 or 3 days, then we are back to dry.

I don't like humidity in summer because it makes me feel even more hot. (hehe)

But dry weather in winter makes my lips crack, not cool at all.

Laurie said...

Adela - Hahahaha to the Pekingese 'fro!!!

Leon - You can imagine how we folks who live with humidy most of time deal with dry weather. Our bodies are SO not used to it.

You're making me think of Office Space - how the guy gets zapped everytime he opens the door to work. Hee hee.

I have to say the sick person in me does have to laugh when I zap the dogs. It's the look on their face. Problem is, I'm an excellent conductor of static and when I zap there is a loud pop, crackle and sometimes a spark. I'm going to be spontaneously combusted one winter.

Laurie said...

Leslie - I love that movie!

Abshid - Hahahahaha!!

OMG! I hate humidity! Here in Fort Worth, it can get up to 50-60% on summer afternoons. Talk about a sauna (Editor's note: Laurie's about to have a web-toed cow about now; 50-60% is a dry day in Southeast Texas).

Laurie said...

George - Hahahaha! You haven't been "home" in a while, in the summer, have you?
