OMG it happened.  For the first time, I dropped my cell phone in the one place you never want to drop your cell phone.

Yep I dropped it in the toilet...AFTER I had finished going to the bathroom.  Without thinking I reached in and grabbed it.  Would you?

Luckily I purchased a water proof phone case.  This was the first time I've 'tested' it to see if it really is waterproof.  I'm happy to say, IT IS!  Not a drop of water, or what was in the toilet, touched my phone. Thank God!

If you don't have a waterproof case, you can try placing your phone in an air tight container, filled with rice.  Leave it for several days and pray the rice soaks up the moisture.

*The pictures of the phone in the toilet are recreations. My first thought wasn't to take a photo when it happened.  But since the case was waterproof, I didn't worry about putting it back in the 'clean' toilet to take a few shots.
