Calling all klutzes…

Dear friends and family,

There was a freak incident this morning involving my phone and Carmen’s tea. I watched in horror as my phone skidded on the carpet, hit a bump, and flipped (while on a phone call) straight into a large mug of green tea. Needless to say, I’m without a phone for the next few days. You can call Carmen if you desperately need to reach me, or just email me.

This is similar to the Great Burrito Incident except that I didn’t do anything stupid on purpose. Truly. This was just a confluence of unfortunate circumstances.

There is hope, however: I may have a friend who has a phone I can use to activate. And my obsession with organization paid off: 3 weeks ago I put all of the phone numbers in my phone onto a Gmail spreadsheet. So I didn’t lose anything.

much love,
Sholeh

  1. and the camera on the phone recorded all the above events, which you were able to retrieve off the flash memory card and will post momentarily?

  2. Wow, so this is an every three years thing, huh? Can’t wait to see what you come up with in 2009!!! (I think it should involve maple syrup… and maybe a few lima beans for good measure…)

  3. You’re a one-percenter! As in, the 1% of the population that actually backs up their data. Bravo, Sholeh. You’re an example to us all. 😉

  4. Ack! This is too much! First the Burrito, then the Green Tea. Oh my goodness, I’m dyin’ over here.

    Who was the lucky person on the phone with you when the incident happened?

  5. George: haha I try my best…

    Mojan: We were going to give directions to Hashem to get to Carmen’s place. 🙂

  6. This post made me guffaw. Not only for the fact that your phone did a backflip into a cup of tea, but that your obsessiveness has paid forth dividends. haha
