- keep things away from me
- January 26th, 11:19
So I ran over my phone with my car. It is possible and not really hard to do. Here is how I did it.
I was coming back from painting class and it had been snowing by then. All the roads were clear except our hill, of course. It was covered completely, roads and everything, by a couple of inches. So the good winter person that I am I parked downhill by the church, and trudged up.
That night I couldn't find my phone, but I figured it was in the car. I couldn't find the phone in my car either because I found it in the parking lot later that day.
It fell out of my half open bag as I was crossing the lot, the next morning when I was bringing my car uphill I ran right over the phone. Got home, looked some more for the yet to be found phone and having concluded my efforts, tied a sting to the right table leg while pronouncing my "this is lost, please give it back" russian spell. Some time later dad walked into the kitchen and convinced me to go look for the phone in the parking lot. Where it was subsequently found with the screen shattered, but in perfect working order. There was no end to my fascination!
My do-it-yourself iphone screen replacement kit arrived in two days. As soon as the box came I sat down to work. I had to take apart the entire phone, replace the screen and put everything back together. Which I did in record time of 7+ hours. And I am not even exaggerating!!! I sat down sometime in the morning and remember getting up at seven pm when it was finally finished, except for the screw that I dropped. To say that I was shaking like a leaf in fear of ruining a screw especially, is to say nothing at all.
The other day when coming back from my Starbucks writing extravaganza I had a flat tire. The tire was repumped and checked out and there seemed nothing wrong with it! How can that be, to be flat at one point and not be flat again? That has a hard time registering in my overworked by iphone repair brain.
