It had to Happen
I knew one day it would happen. I am surprised that I managed to get by as long as I have without it happening. I still can’t believe I let it happen. Where was my head, what was I thinking. Obviously I wasn’t thinking, my head wasn’t attached, and I was caught up in the moment.
I went swimming at the pool today and so did my cell phone!
I put my sunglasses, towel, book to read, reading glasses, keys, etc. on a lounge chair by the pool. Stepped under the shower (required before entering pool) and boldly walked down the steps carefully hanging on to the railing right in to the pool. It wasn’t but a minute later and I felt this vibration throughout my, ah—mid section of my body, and I was thinking, wow—I should go swimming more often! When I came to my senses I realized I had left my cell phone in the pocket of my swim trunks and the sensual vibration I was feeling was that feature you use in a theater, not in the pool. It had shorted out real good.
Of course one hopes that the sun will dry it out and all will be ok, but the reality is that rarely works. Ironically I had stopped at the Verizon Phone Center to have them upgrade the software in my phone just two days ago as it had been giving me a little trouble. I had inquired at that time to see if I was eligible for a phone upgrade and was informed that I was. Today I went back looking a little sheepish but I now have a new phone—same number. Now if I can just reconstruct all the numbers I had in my old contact list. If you don’t hear from me it isn’t cause I don’t love ya—its cause I can’t remember your number!
