To get an idea of life as Virginia, the Electric Girl, just imagine you can release electricity from your body at will; you can turn lights on and off with a thought (even in a 50,000-seat baseball stadium); you can change the channels on the TV without a remote; you can turn off your alarm clock---permanently; you can give anyone who irritates you a bit of a jolt. Add a watt of teenage trouble, boys, friends, surly relatives, a pet, a gremlin, a robo-Blammo, and---you get the idea---you now might be within an ampere of understanding the day in the life of Electric Girl.
