Hello, Mr. Cellular Service Representative, my current phone seems to be in distress. Might you be able to transfer my number to this old phone of my sister’s?
What happened? Well, the phone got wet. I’d really rather not divulge any more than that, except to say that I have learned my lesson and will never carry my phone in my back pocket again, at least not near water.
Pardon? Well, I wasn’t in the kitchen, I’ll leave it at that. Yes, the phone was completely submerged. You can’t expect me to even hint about what happened next, but you can be reassured that the phone did not stay in the water for long and that my subsequent activity involved plenty of hot water and antibacterial hand soap.
Yes, I did see that rice trick on Pinterest. That’s where the phone has been for the last 24 hours, except that I forgot to take it apart first.
It’s still wet? Well that can’t be from the original incident, that must be from the Clorox wipe that I used because…well, never mind.
Do I want to keep the old phone as a toy for my daughter? Er, no thanks.
All set? Well, thank you! And yes, I will be careful with this one. What’s that? Be sure to check out the tinkling ringtones? Why are you laughing? Oh, what do you know anyway!
