Phone For Sale. Cheap.

GirlChild managed to shock herself in the head with the charging-end of the cordless phone today.   (It makes me laugh to write that.)  She cried and complained of tingling in her head that sort of came and went and we struggled with lamest-trip-to-the-ER vs. girl-has-seizures-for-life-because-we-did-nothing.

It was a tough call because GirlChild's appearance was homeless looking and you don't want to walk in with an obviously neglected child that got 120 volts to the head.  (I made up the volt number.  I don't know anything about electricity as shown by a previous post regarding batteries in canoes filled with water.)  We had experimented with purple hair dye last week and it's fading in places.  Her hair was also kinda dry and Bride-of-Frankenstein looking, but I'm not sure if that was from the phone or just because she hadn't brushed it.  Outfit:  high-energy orange t-shirt with sky blue capris.  Barefoot.  'Cause that's how we roll to the ER.

BabyCakes took her in regardless of appearance and told me the aftershocks wore off by the time they got to the end of the driveway.  Turned out to be THE lamest trip ever because they didn't even write anything on the dismissal papers.  Was sort of expecting, "keep away from hair dryers and bathtubs" or "replace phone."
