It's a Christmas Miracle

I've heard the stories. Some of them even firsthand. But never did I expect to be among the notorious iPhone owners who manage to find their precious iPhones in a toilet. I mean how does that happen? Oh I know what you are thinking. I used to be you. That is until yesterday.

I was at my parent's home about to wash my hands. I went to set my phone down on the counter and somehow it slipped. I over reacted and went to protect the phone. I probably made it much worse as I bumped it into the the toilet. Sad day! This is one of those times that I'm so grateful that my mother is a major cleanliness freak. (Mom, I don't really think you are a freak other than sometimes when it comes to cleaning.) My reflexes were lightening fast. I did not hesitate to reach right in and rescue my dear iPhone. I gave it a good wipe down trying to eliminate all moisture. Unfortunately water got into the speakers and the jack. I was sure that I was going to be out a lot of cash. I tried shutting my phone down but it would turn itself back on. This didn't sound good! I noticed that I could still get and send text messages. That was good news. But I also noticed that anything that produced sound on the phone was not working. I kept getting an error message about how the accessory was not made to work with this iPhone. Apparently toilet water is not a compatible accessory for my iPhone. Good to know! :)

I am pleased to report that my phone seems to be in perfect working order today. I'm grateful for that! And before you mock me, just remember that I used to be you.
