Mobile in a Coma

>> Sunday, June 3, 2007

I woke up early yesterday to take a shower before the sun boils Doha's water system. When I entered the bathroom I was tempted to finish all my laundry including the ones I wore to bed. The washing machine was just there anyway, and by the time I finished my morning rituals my clothes would have spun dry. I took off my shirt and shorts and dropped it into the washing machine. I observed as the hypnotic drip of the water filled it up. Then, I took a shower, not minding the unusually loud bump-bump of the machine.

The wash was a bit slow. I have already dressed up, packed my overnight stuff and prepared to leave but the washing machine hasn't sung its "I'm done" ring tone yet. So I figured, I should text my mom while waiting. My cellphone wasn't on my bedside table. I panicked.

I ran to the bathroom. I opened the lid of the washing machine. My clothes were already spinning dry. I grabbed my shorts, reached for its pocket and tugged my phone out. It was amazingly dry! It should be cause the machine spun it 50revs a second.

Then I looked at my mobile closely. The LCD screen is full of water! Imagine my anguish. My companion, OW, lifeless. I didn't know what to do. I wanted to cry. There goes the music. There goes the RSS feeds. There goes the cool factor.

Until now, my mobile is still in a coma. I hope it's not terminal.

MAUI: Naku naghahanap na nga ako ng 5110 kaso extinct na ata. LoL

INTSIK: I'm still keeping my hopes up before I actually buy another one. I need to dry it out first completely before turning it on again. I don't know the prices anymore, Joe. I do know it's more expensive here in Qatar hehehe

DERF: You think so? I saw N95 on the displays. I know it's supposed to be great but I'm sorry to say that there was no chemistry. Unlike the first time I saw SE W850i, my heart leaped in excitement =)

NOYPI: Mao lagi ba, tanga ra jud siguro ta kay wa nato gina check ang bulsa bag-o ilabay sa washing machine. I don't think I will buy a phone anytime soon. Goodluck on your vacation, hope to see you before you leave, pahiram susi sa imong kwarto! hahaha

Oh no... the very reason I dont want to have a very cool phone. I have to fight that feeling everytime I get into the malls. I look like a kid standing outside a candy store with my mouth open.

JINOE, don't punish yourself hahaha buy that cool phone, buy it, buuuuuuy it =) tempting enough? hahaha

VAUGHN, how you know me! I had to restrain myself in a straighjacket just so I won't open the darn thing.

TON, I remember how your phone got wet when you left it outside the house one rainy night during one of our of driking sessions. I couldn't relate back then, but now I know how you felt =( miss you too, and will consider using the batya next time. =)
