Well, I’m such a klutz, a butterfingers, a boob, etc.  I’m just darn clumsy & today I proved it.  Today, when I got home from running errands, I put my wallet & cellphone on the hood of my car as I ran to grab the mail from the mailbox.  I’m sure  you can guess what happened next…my phone slid off the car & dropped smack dab on the concrete driveway.

I was soooooo incredibly relieved that there was no physical hardware or aesthetic damage to the cellphone itself.  There were only 2 small scratched patches & a hairline crack on the corner of my phone case.  I am so happy & glad & relieved (& all that stuff) that I purchased an extremely reliable & durable phone case.  I’ve made mistakes in the past where I’ve purchased phone cases that were purely for looks & not for function.  Now that I have a cellphone that I know I’m going to treasure & use for many years to come, I ended up getting a phone case that’s not only pretty, but very practical as well.

I’m just a little disappointed that I dropped my cellphone…ANNNNND…I dropped my cellphone so soon after I had purchased it.  I’m also disappointed that I put my phone case to the test today.  Oh, & I was trying so hard to be good & not make any accidents with my new cellphone.  I try very hard to keep all of my electronic items in the best condition possible, & it always pisses me off when I do stupid things like this.

Well, on a positive note…I was able to save & re-use my phone case.  There were 2 scratches on my phone case & one small hairline crack.  Here’s how I fixed the little imperfections on my phone case:

  1. I used a manicure nail file to smooth down the rough patches.  I used the strong side of the nail file to smooth down the scratchy parts & the buffer side to smooth out the scratch lines.
  2. Next, I used a clear Top Coat nail polish (with a nylon ingredient built in) to paint a light layer of coating on the slim crack.  The nail polish I used is the Top Coat kind, because that’s the most durable part of a nail manicure.  I made sure to paint 2-3 coats on both sides of the case to make sure the coating lasts.
P.S. This is what my cellphone & case looks like:

It seems the weather is becoming cooler, & Mother Nature is getting ready for the Autumn/Winter seasons.  So here I bring you a list of things that bring me joy in the Autumn/Winter time:

  • the feeling after taking a hot shower
  • hot chocolate with whipped cream (& marshmallows if you like them)
  • a big bowl of hearty beef stew
  • wearing thick socks
  • sitting next to a crackling fireplace
  • wearing slipper booties (WOoT for Isotoners!)
  • flannel pajamas (especially the ones w/ the feet)
  • a hot bubble bath with rich bubbles
  • a steaming bowl of Chinese soup noodles (or rice porridge)
  • a fresh, hot cup of coffee in a ceramic mug
  • watching the rain thru the window while you are warm & dry indoors
  • sitting under a warm kotatsu, eating snacks & drinking beer while watching sports on TV
  • having post-MLB / World Series / NFL tailgate parties at home
  • listening to the sound of the rain before falling asleep
  • a warm towel straight from the dryer
  • the toasty feeling of clean clothes straight from the dryer
  • movie marathons while sitting under a blanket & eating freshly popped popcorn
