rice is nice

since my cell phone took a high dive off the window ledge
into our swirling hot tub
it was a 9.5 score on that dive
it was a single somersault with the bottom of the phone going
in first

luckily i didnt allow it to hit the bottom of the hot tub
but instead caught it within a foot of hitting the water

i instantly jumped out of the tub and took in into the kitchen
instantly wiped it off
removed the otter cover
wiped it off again
then plunged into a jar of rice so that no parts of the
phone were visible
it did ring once that i heard
since i couldnt turn the phone off

(turns out it was my surfer brotherinlaw letting us know
he got stuck in houston over night but was on his way
back to nicaragua)

then i had to wait
that was the hardest to do was wait
and had to use an old flip phone
how did i ever use that thing before


was my message since i coulnt figure out how to do the space
bar on that old flipper

so after 24 hours
well it was 11 hours 45 minutes i took the phone out of the rice
wiped it off of rice dust
mashed the on button
there it was working
put in my password
everything seemed to be working well
i cant turn it off
ive decided i could deal with that since ive never turned it off
just set the timer to 1 min so it turns its self off if not used

saw a funny commercial where the guy dropped his phone
in the toilet then immersed it in rice
when he removed it from the rice his phone was working ok
he called his mom
his friend reminded him while he was talking to his mom
you know you dropped that in the toilet
dont you

tough choice on what to do then

at least my phone was dropped in cleaner water
