I could not find my phone this morning. Then I did. It went through the washing machine. It is in pieces. So now I have no phone access out of the city. And, even worse, I have lost all my phone numbers to call my friends and family.
I shall attempt to dry out and reassemble the phone. If friends would be so kind as to message me your phone numbers, I would be very grateful.
Learn from my error, and keep a backup copy of your personal phone book somewhere other than in a wee bit of pocket electronics (and do what I did not, and check your pockets before laundry)
