Yesterday I had been doing some gardening chores when I decided that I needed to cool off before I had a heat stroke. Since I was wearing my swimsuit in anticipation of such an event, I jumped in the pool.
No, this isn't my pool. This pool is drop-dead gorgeous, in my opinion.
My pool is just a pool. Nothing fancy, but it's refreshing when the temperature is 100+. And Bitsy likes to swim:
So we jumped in the pool and were having a grand time, when I suddenly had a sinking feeling (not literally) that something just wasn't right.
I reached into the small pocket of my swim suit, hoping desperately that I had remembered to take out my cell phone before I jumped in the water. (I always have my cell phone with me because, with four children roaming around the countryside, I never know when someone might need to "get aholdt" of me.)
No such luck:
Oh, no! Not again……..
My first iPhone met its watery death when I accidentally dropped it into a glass of water. It was the cat's fault, but that's another story.
My second iPhone got smashed to smithereens when I dropped it on a tile floor. Completely ruined….
And now this.
I'm trying the old iPhone-in-a-pan-of-rice trick, but I don't have much hope that it will work. I tried it with my first phone, and it didn't work.
It obviously didn't work.
So today when I went to the Apple store to get my FOURTH phone, I bought the insurance policy.
Duh. No brainer. Should've done it long ago.
Now I can get a CUTE phone cover, because if I have another accident, the phone will be replaced for free (sort of).
