It has been a tragic day!
Yesterday I thought I should go to the restroom before class started (which I never do).
As I stood up I heard a PLUNK.
I reached into the toilet to now have my hand and phone lodged into the small whole at the bottom of the toilet. Needless to say I was not saying nice words and I am sure the staff member who came into the washroom at the time was wondering what was going on in my stall.
Eventually I was able to free myself from the toilet and luckily the Life Skills teacher was the first person I saw when I came out of the washroom. She kindly found me some rice which I managed to get my phone into.
My phone now lies in a bed of rice as I patiently wait to see if it works.
I use my phone for many things and it was not until today that I realized how important it was too me. I feel lost without it and as I heard other people phones chime or ring today I felt myself looking for my own.
My students all had fun with this today. Several looked and wondered why I had a bowl of rice on my desk. Others gave me suggestions on how to fix it but the best was watching their faces when I told them where it fell and the adventure I went through to get it. Many smiled and laughed while others looked at me to get the okay to laugh.
Despite the jokes I really hope to find my phone in the morning in good working condition.
If there is one lesson to be learned from this:
NEVER PUT YOUR PHONE IN YOUR BACK POCKET!
