My guardian angel is a techie: who knew?

My cell phone, which went in the river last Sunday, was dried out and worked fine by Tuesday last, but to turn it off I had to remove the battery; the switch didn't work. That was OK, but I was worried about how I would charge the battery when it ran low, since you're supposed to have it off when you do that.

This morning, I picked up my phone, and noticed that it was off, just as I reflexively squeezed the button to turn it on. It came right on, and immediately emitted a beep that meant the battery was low. So I turned it off, plugged it into the charger, and by this evening was all charged up again.

The phone works as if it had never gone in the river. Someone up there likes me. And he understands cell phones! (It's a miracle!)
