I have pigtailed ground wires to
a series of six electrical outlets, and I say this so that in the event
of my untimely electrocution those investigating will know I understand
how the electric is not a part of life that can be left to trial and
error, or wishfulness, or large quantities of beer.
Then the moment arrived when
all was in place. Briefly I thought about crossing my fingers, saying
my prayers, looking into the heaven. And realized as I did so that
dignity required me to check my work yet one more time.
