This last weekend, my sister was visiting from overseas. She shared a story with me (and about me) that I’d long since forgotten… perhaps for obvious reasons. When I was a child, I apparently had an affinity for sticking forks in electrical outlets. I remember my mother freaking out once when I once stuck a coat hanger in an electrical socket, but I had long since forgotten that electrocuting myself had been an ongoing habit. When my sister had asked the child me why I was sticking forks in electrical outlets I apparently responded, “Because I like how it feels.”
Today, I can hardly imagine ‘liking how it feels’ and yet trying to imagine it tells me so much about who I am today and who I should be tomorrow.
