mom was right -- once
I eye it. Why would my hand be peeling? I have not been out in the sun really, I have not burned myself —
Oh. Wait. There was that “battery acid” incident.
I thought battery acid was just made up by my mother to terrorize me right before she made me go take batteries out of things. I have never actually seen battery acid or any evidence of battery acid’s existence ever before and did not really believe in “battery acid,” but there I am taking batteries out of a gadget [not a sex toy you pervs] and the little part that snaps open has some liquid on it on the inside and I am thinking, That is weird, where did that come from? Were my hands wet? And trying to wipe it off, and thinking, hmm, this liquid spot is sort of shaped like a battery, and I find more inside the gadget and ON the batteries I just knocked into my hand and I am thinking, This is really weird, gee, I hope this is not “battery acid,” ha ha Mom —
When my hands get really mad really fast anywhere this stuff has touched them like they want to be rinsed off AND RIGHT NOW DAMMMIT.
Wow. Battery acid. Who knew?
