Should I be worried about water damage?

    ....Or am I just being overly paranoid? About 3 or 4 days ago, I had just gotten out of the shower, and hadn't properly dried my hair. When I used my Macbook Pro (late 2013, 13 inch w/ retina) I got literally 2 drops of water on my keyboard (in different places. 2 drops total, but they dropped on different places). I quickly wiped away the water, but theres a chance some of it got below the key. Keep in mind that these are minuscule amounts of water.

    My Mac has been working perfectly since, just as it always has. No random reboots, strange noises, fan only comes on during gaming, no screen flickering.
    Its just that I was reading about how corrosive damage can take a while to appear. Does that apply to water as well, or mainly just soft drinks/alcohol? Am I making too big of a deal about this?

    If nothing has gone wrong yet, I would not worry about it. Two drops that you wiped off is not enough to soak into the inside and damage anything.
