Nokia phones rock!
No, Nokia has not sent me payment for advertising on my blog, but I do have to take a moment to speak of my Nokia phone’s remarkable ability to revive after being submerged in water for at least 2 minutes. On Monday morning, we were getting ready to check out of a motel at the end of a long and very arduous trip home from our Thanksgiving vacation.
Picture it. Mom, Dad, 4 young children all sharing one motel room. Chaos available in abundance. There wasn’t too much of a chance that we would really be paying attention to what 2-year-old Charis was doing. Then, I saw it. In the midst of the dull roar of activity, I reached for something from the bathroom vanity, and looking down, I noticed that Nokia phones do not float. They sink right to the bottom of motel ice buckets filled with water from the previous night’s ice. I fished it out, took it apart, and I dried it first with a towel. Then I gave it a full two minutes of direct attention from the in-room hair dryer. We went to breakfast, and I came back and gave the phone some more attention from the blow dryer.
After we arrived home, I took the phone apart and laid it out to dry all day yesterday. This morning, I plugged it in to recharge, and so far it seems as good as new.
