It works!

Yesterday, Oliver was playing with his Fisher-Price Ernie toy. You see, Ernie was going swimming in a cup of water, and he was having a great time.

Then he decided something else needed to go for a swim, my ipod shuffle. Apparently, for over 5 minutes, the shuffle was enjoying the swim too, until I fished it out. No one's fault, but my own.

This is when I worked quickly to start the rice absorption trick. I put the shuffle in a small bowl of rice for 24 hours and crossed my fingers in hopes that the rice would work its magic. And it did! Fully functioning at this time. Wahoo!

Wow. I'm impressed that the rice trick actually worked but I'm even more impressed that you're able to take the blame for that one. I'm pretty sure I'd have been trying to sell one of my kids to replace the iPod if it didn't start working again. ;)

The shuffle that keeps on giving. That story is going down in the history books.
