My Heart Stopped

I knew it was going to happen someday.

I'm just too clumsy NOT to drop my phone at some point.

I've had my iPhone for about two months now and have avoided any mishaps until yesterday.

I pulled it out at the used bookstore the snap a photo of a book that a friend has been looking for and it happened...

My beautiful, fragile phone slipped through my fingers and fell (in what felt like slow motion) to the cement (or is it concrete?) floor. I heard the clatter and saw something fly off the phone.

I swear my heart stopped for just a second and then it started beating a mile a minute.

The phone landed face down so I slowly bent down and picked it up...not wanting to turn it over and see the damage.

Fortunately, the case lived up to its claim and absorbed the impact with NO damage to the phone itself. The piece I saw when the phone hit the floor came from the case itself and it's actually not too noticeable.

But to be on the safe side, I'm considering investing in a different type of phone protection...

I'm heart is still racing and I look kind of silly holding my phone to my ear with both hands.


  1. Lol! You had me! I thought you broke it!

  2. Oh my! IF I ever get my iphone, I will have to have it wrapped in something that the dog does nto like the taste of by the looks of my phone that Steve found outside. Sadie didn't eat it, but she chewed the heck out of it to the point where it needs to be replaced with something! One of our friends asked Steve if I put peanut butter on it and then placed it right by the dog house! I think he's trying to get ME in the dog house! Sigh..... Right now my farmer is all for baling wire and duct tape until February when our contract is up. Not sure I can hold out that long, but I'm trying not to kill him, I mean be patient! ;-)

  3. Those cases are amazing, aren't they? I've dropped mine several times without horrid consequences. Glad yours was no worse for the wear.

  4. Awesome... I drop mine in water like 3 phones I have dropped in some sort of water... Haven't found a case for that...
