My iPhone 4 fell out of my back pocket and into the toilet.
Three things raced through my mind when I heard the splash: Get it out! Dry it off! I can’t believe this is happening!
I grabbed a towel and rubbed, and then I did what you are never, ever supposed to do when your cellphone gets wet: turned it on.
A flicker of life! The little Apple silhouette — glowing, otherwordly — appeared . . . and vanished.
