Last week I was in my kitchen working on chopping up some apples from our own tree, for an apple crisp. Many recipes that I use in the kitchen these days reside on my iPad. I use a program called Evernote to store a lot of my family favorite recipes, and also favorites that I have found on the internet.
I was diligently working, talking to the kids, and as I moved the cutting board I knocked over a glass of water, and it splattered my iPhone and iPad. My twenty-somethings jumped out of their seats, and got my iPad out-of-the-way. I grabbed my iPhone, and I was ever so thankful that I had the Otterbox cover on it. The twenty-somethings quickly grabbed some towels while I was tending to my iPhone, and we got everything dried up. Oh, and I also had my favorite Pioneer Woman cookbook sitting on the counter. This was a big glass of ice water.
Without the Otterbox cover on my iPhone it would have been toasted. I got the Otterbox for my iPhone because I’m always carrying it with me outside, especially when Travel Man’s on the road. And since I garden a little everyday it becomes a necessity when I am working outside. My Otterbox has saved my phone a few times now. Totally worth the investment.
There was a little skosch of water underneath the screen saver on the iPhone, and I had to remember how to get the darn Otterbox off of my phone. I could not remember which tabs to push or pull, so my daughter when on the internet and googled it for me. She tried to find a you tube video for me, but Travel Man knew how to take it off and saved the day.
Normally I don’t have a glass of anything liquid anywhere near my electronics. But I must have been extra thirsty on this cooking day, because I wasn’t really paying attention to where my glass of water was. I was focused on apple crisp (Which is a great recipe for another day). With so many electronics in the house it’s a wonder we have not had more mishaps similar to this one. Fortunately for me, this one turned out A-ok.
Have you had any electronics mishaps recently?
