I rarely wear jeans. I used to as an 80s teenager because that’s what teenagers in the 80s wore, but nowadays? Nah.
I especially don’t wear jeans while committed to the house like some common criminal on house arrest during this endless covid-fiasco. I usually wear tights or yoga pants, something comfortable and easy and, you know…stretchy.
I figure, if I don’t have to go anywhere, why bother with jeans?
But now the weather has changed and it got cooler. And for once, I thought I would put some normal clothes on. So, I too my black jeans out of my drawer and put them on.
They fit. Yippee do. Pass the chocolate.
Then I remembered, they have pockets. Deep enough for my phone!
Here’s another thing I rarely do. I rarely put my phone in my back jeans pocket.
Because I either have my phone on a counter, or in my hand. And, if I’m out and about, in a green wallet thingy on straps into which my phone fits. Avoids me having to carry a purse and the phone is protected along with the cards and keys while I navigate my day with my hands free.
So why was today different?
I’ll tell you why.
He was distracting me. So while I was dealing with him, I put my phone in my back pocket because he was pestering me in a hallway where there is no counter to put the phone on. Then, I forgot I put my phone in the back pocket of my jeans, and went around the house collecting the things I need to get some food shopping done: list, car keys, put on shoes…
Once I did all that, I needed to pee. So I went into the bathroom, and pulled my jeans down and…
My phone was in the toilet.
BLAH fucking BLAH
So now I have no phone, no apps, and no camera. That’s the worst part – I love taking photos of my walks with the dog. There are so many bright, beautiful colours out there now and we all know that won’t last much longer…
I hate 2020. What else is going to happen this year? When is this stupid year over? This is an outrage and and an inconvenience and I quit.
PS If you want to point out that right now might be a good time to start an electronic detox, kindly shut up, turn around and walk away, I don’t wanna hear about it. Thanks.
