Here’s a child making an astute observation:

The childcare center playground has a plastic fort with plastic slides.

With repeated sliding, there will be static electricity.

A child (age three) and I zapped each other.

Her: “Zappies!!” (touching my finger again to make it work.) “Where’s the zappies?”

Me: “Hmm, it worked the first time you went down the slide, but now it’s not working.  Why’s that?”

Her: “You need to put batteries in your toenails.”
