Eggs and Cell Phone… Bad Mix

They say you don’t know what you got til it’s gone. I’m feeling that today, big time.

Sunday I collected one egg from the eggmobile and put it in my coat pocket. Monday I put my cell phone in my coat pocket on my way to do chores. I must have hit something and kerrr-plat, eggs all over my pocket. I didn’t know it had happened until I reached in to grab my phone. It came out covered in egg yolk. Yumm.

I took it in the house and wiped it down with a washcloth. It still worked, luckily.

After I fell asleep waiting for Brian to come home from farming he was nice enough to set the alarm on my phone for me. The alarm went off at 6:30 AM this morning. Fine, except when I reached over to hit snooze, none of the buttons would work. Even the power button would not stop the horrendous screeching. It took me a good 5 minutes to get the battery out. Apparently egg is a lot like glue when it dries, who knew?

Once I took it all apart and wiped it down again the phone was working fine. Then I forgot my purse and my phone when I left for work. That made for a fun day since I had no money, no drivers’ license, and no key for work. I finally found my phone at home only to realize that it now doesn’t work at all. Not one bit. Actually, the buttons seem to work but the screen is blank.

Now stopping at the cell phone store has been added to my long list of errands for tomorrow. Lesson learned: Do NOT put EGGS in your POCKETS!!

Is the spring season craziness catching up with you too? Or is it just me? I’m exhausted, and wondering what’s next.

    Oh my gosh! That is a PITA but too funny! šŸ™‚ I can laugh because I/we go through cells phones like crazy. The worst was when one slipped out of my jacket pocket and into the toilet. Ick. One got tossed into the bath water by my daughter. My dog chewed one up and the keypad was gone but it still worked as long as I used an ink pen to poke the button holes. I used it for a LONG time until hubby forced me to get the free plan upgrade phone. My hubby went swimming in a lake and forgot he had his in his pocket. The phone I really want is a water resistent army spec phone, it has been advertised as being run over by a truck and still working fine. It is ugly and bulky, but worth it if you ask me! Yes, spring is catching up with me too. We have just been so busy. My sleep pattern is way off and I can’t seem to make it through the day without laying down with my youngest for a nap. Which means I am behind on housework and laundry because I am too busy napping. I am ready for the kids to be out of school so we can sleep in and things can slow down a bit.

    LOL Oh yes, that is one lesson all chicken owners just seem to have to learn the hard way! šŸ™‚
