I’ve twice run my ipod through the washing machine, on accident of course. It still works to this day, and is now seven years old.
This week I accidentally ran my hand held radio through a full spin cycle—after leaving it in the pocket of my sweatshirt.
The front case, as you can see, was knocked off, so was the battery flap, and the tuning knob was spinning like a pinwheel.
As a sports radio junkie, this devise goes just about everywhere I go around the condo—kitchen, bathroom, Man cave. It’s a part of my daily routine, or was, until I gave it a thorough cleaning.
No way it would work again, right? Well, much to my surprise, after drying out for 24 hours it did! Chicago Cubs baseball is back on the air!
Truth be told, I shouldn’t be so shocked this little guy survived. It has, after all, endured two National League Division sweeps and a 101-loss season.
Thankfully, it should also be around for better days ahead, assuming I don’t accidentally iron it, flush it or cook it in the microwave.
