A friend sent me a text this morning as I was about to go downstairs
My heart skipped a beat and I texted her back
I hurried out of my room and, of course, when I turned, I dropped my phone on the top step.
"Damn it!" I yelled watching the skidding and bouncing on the steps. It landed on the hardwood floor of the living room with a loud crash.
Of course! I thought as I harried down the steps. It had to happen at the worst time possible. Now I have to call the ER on the landline and then it will take who knows how long to replace the broken phone.
Then I heard a ping sound.
I picked up my phone that didn't appear to be broken and saw that I got a text message.
I stared at the words on the screen feeling utterly confused. Then a crazy though ran through my mind with lightning speed, my phone is texting me that it's okay!
Then I came to my senses, Don't be stupid! I scolded my imaginative mind for coming up with such a stupid idea, it's Eva... it must to be Eva...
I took a closer look at the screen and there it was. Phew... it was Eva. I though feeling relived and burst out laughing.
Thank you Droid for building such durable phone!
Have you any stories when you thought you lost your marbles?
Share it, so I won't feel alone LOL
