This afternoon, while I was at the reference desk, something very weird happened. I was just working away as usual. I had gone to the DVD section to help someone find a movie, and when I got back to the desk, I reached for the computer mouse. I got the hugest electric shock ever. I can still kind of feel it in my finger. And get this: the mouse and keyboard both stopped working as a result of the shock. Did I electrocute my mouse?
