See this picture? This is a picture of Ian from Christmas morning. Last year. (AS IN, 2008.)
See the phone in the picture? That cute green doggie phone with candy in it?
Ian broke that phone later in the day on Christmas day 2008. It wouldn't stop making its annoying beeping sound. We tried bashing it, immersing it in water, nothing. So we put it in the freezer.
Yesterday, while cleaning the freezer, I found the sweet little dead doggie phone. And tossed it safely into the garbage. It was dead, right?!
Today, after an entire year plus a week in the freezer, after being immersed in water, stomped on, and other forms of torture, That damn phone started beeping again from beyond the grave!
It took me a minute to figure out where the strange beeping noise was coming from, but I finally narrowed it down to the garbage can... and remembered putting the phone there yesterday.
You drop a $200 cell phone into a puddle and it's dead forever. You try to kill a $1 doggy candy phone from Rite Aid and you can't.
