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.
