I’m convinced that every time I get sick, I lose a few more brain cells. This past week I was sick with a cold…not a big deal, right? Wrong! This cold packed a wallop and put my mental capacity on the level of a 3-year-old. I honestly thought, I’m ready for the home…
I couldn’t remember what I did 2 minutes ago and wandered aimlessly around the house trying to remember why I got up in the first place. I would sit or lie down and would instantly be in a deep sleep. Thank goodness that never happened in the bathroom!
The most idiotic thing I did during this adventure was to microwave my iPhone. I know you are asking yourself, how in the world…well let me tell you…
I have a wonderful aromatic blanket that can be heated in the microwave. When you are cold or down with a bug, it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. After a long, but cold, afternoon nap, I warmed the blanket and put it on my lap. Evidently, I also put my iPhone on my lap and when the blanket had cooled, I wrapped it up and put it back in the microwave to heat again.
Funny thing, my iPhone was nowhere to be found. I looked everywhere, even resorting to going through the garbage. After a long period of hunting, I was worn out and decided to sit down with the warmed blanket. Guess what was stuck to the blanket…the micowaved iPhone.
My humbling trip to the AT&T store was greeted with comments by the staff of ‘that’s one for the books’. Now I’m known by my very friendly and kind AT&T store staff as ‘the microwave lady’.
Today, I feel like the majority of my strength and some of my brain cells have returned. At least that’s what I’m telling myself…now where is my iPhone?

I would like to thank my neighbor and good buddy Maribeth for making me a special microwaved appetizer last night. So glad I have friends and family to laugh with!
