Just about very day, we hear about how important it is to wash our fruit when bringing it home from the supermarket. There are pesticides galore lurking on those peaches and apples, right? What we do not hear to much about is refraining from washing our cell phones with the fruit!
Wish I had.
Sunday, I ducked into the supermarket to buy some fruit as well as other items for the week. There were a few bags to carry into the house, plus my camera, cell phone, keys and purse. With so much to carry, I slipped my cell phone into one of the fruit bags. BAD MOVE. Once inside the house, I ran the hot water in the dishpan at the sink, added a healthy squirt of Dawn Dish detergent and emptied one bag of fruit into it. The cell phone also went for a swim.
As soon as I did it, it flashed in my brain to retrieve that phone. I frantically dried it, removed the battery and prayed. Hoped. Looked longingly at its black screen?
Someone told me to immerse it in rice inside a baggie, set it in a sunny spot and wait. I did that for 24 hours but to no avail. Modern technology is unforgiving of sudsy hot water. So, to make a long story longer, I got a new cell phone and am currently learning how to operate it.
It's as colorful as a rainbow but oh yikers, for a non-techie person, it's brutal to realize how much there is to learn.
It's like plunging into a swimming pool filled with ice and freezing water. Lesson learned: Don't put your cell phone into a fruit bag when coming home from the supermarket. Ringgggg ringgggg Now how the heck do I answer the new phone?
