    I’m glad I’m not the only one trained to be afraid of touching metal things. Static electricity loves me. Best one was a visible arc of about an inch between my hand and my car door.
    Also, now coveting every bag on the Makr site.

    I’m SO staticky! (Is that a word?) I had a static eliminator thingy but I never had it out when I needed it and it never ended up being useful. What I do is quickly and firmly tap something metal with a knuckle before touching it with my hands. For example, tap the car door with a knuckle, then open the car door. It totally works, and although you can feel the sensation of static with your knuckle, it’s QUICK and not painful. In fact, sometimes I can hear it but not feel it. I know I look like a crazy person at the grocery store (AGH those metal shelves!) but it’s changed my life!
