The first ray of sunshine that touched my baby’s skin blew every light bulb in the house instantly. It wasn’t until my wife wore her thick rubber nurse shoes that we finally figured out.

I came home one afternoon to find her hair standing on end and sparking as she gently cooed to our baby boy in the late afternoon sun.

He wears an empty battery pack now for emergencies.

We affix a ground wire to his shoe during the summer months and always get a refund check from the power company thanking us for going green with solar panels.
