Static Cling

I'm headed off to Las Vegas again in a couple of days, and so I have to prepare myself for the zappy shocks I get there during the winter. Y'know, static zaps.

There's something about the cold, dry desert air that sets us Hawaii people up for shocks. Touch an elevator button ... zap! Touch a door knob ... zap! Heck, touch your spouse ... zap!

When you take off your Polartec(R) jacket, you can hear the crackle as it pulls away from your shirt. Pull it over your head and your hair stands on end. If you don't take it off completely, it clings to you. Throw it on a chair and it clings to the chair (see?).

Hope I don't self-electocute while I'm there.
