    Those Damn Electric Fences

    I was pretty close friends with my second cousin. We both grew up on farms, so you'd think I wouldn't be hurt any more at her place than mine? Especially since dad's place had a few old dilapidated buildings that I loved playing in. But dad was a sheep and grain farmer with very...

    When I Was Young...

    My younger brother had smashed my night-light. I was playing with it that night and I somehow managed to get my finger stuck inside of it. It was turned on, so it gave me an electric shock until I managed to pull my finger back out.

    More Than Once I Am Afraid
