Soooo I had the biggest scare of my life yesterday at Universal Studios....
It being that this was the first thing on my mind when I woke up, I decided to write about it.
I am germophobic. So whenever I use public restrooms, I make sure to place down 2 sheets of toilet seat covers. But before that, I always place my iPhone(on top of toilet paper) on top of the little garbage bin built into the stalls. I do this rather than keeping in my pocket in the fear that it slips out of my pocket and drop on the ground.
So yesterday, I did my usual routine that I have been doing all day everyday then go to the sink, washed my hands for a long time, dried them for a long time and walked out.
My family and I were roaming around and my sister wanted to take pictures of the curious George playground. My mom told me to take pictures with my phone as well. So I said “give me my phone” only to be replied by “I gave your phone back to you when you took pictures of the kwik e Mart.” I laugh, feel all my pockets, and perform a fullbody patdown as if I set off the metal detector at LAX, only to feel no outline of the rectangular block.
That’s when I had this immediate flashback as if those moments were replaying in my head. I immediately sprinted from where I was standing to the washroom, body slamming into 3 ppl on the sprint finally clothes-lining a worker in the bathroom on my way in. I ran looking through each stall and then …I found my iPhone resting on top of the makeshift bed of toilet paper I made.
Mind you the time in between me leaving the stall and outside curious George playground was a good 3 minutes, but now thinking back in those 3 minutes something could’ve happened to my iPhone. The women’s washroom was very busy.
Never has this ever happened to me. I don’t know why I wasn’t alert.
My life is basically in my phone or rather my phone is my life. Anyone who has ever or gotten close to losing a phone will understand that sick feeling I felt.
Nonetheless, after I found my phone, I left the washroom chanting aloud “God you are so good, glory to you alone. You are worthy of all praise thank you Jesus.”
