Summer is just around the corner, I can tell because I see a deluge of bathing suits at every blasted store I have the misfortune of walking into. I may not be ready for summer but all of my gadgets are! Along with summer comes the threat of water while engaging in extreme sports, okay, maybe it is just standing in a kiddie pool to cool off, but the potential of dropping my phone is insurmountable. Have you ever seen how clumbsy I am? I am just a mishap away from needing a new phone. I once dropped an ex-boyfriend’s phone into a cocktail. Vodka/cranberry, I think it was! The phone just barely fit in the glass to begin with and I managed to drop it straight into the glass parting the ice cubes as it submerged.
Many families are either installing or opening their pools. Then there are the lake or beach people that blike to get the hell out of dodge. There must be a plan in place as even the kids now have cell phones. You know there’s always one instigator who thrives on throwing someone in the pool or off then side of the boat.
