Stupid topic, I know, especially when I could be like everyone else and talk about something that really matters.....like the next iphone.

But, I love this feeling. Its such a rush!! But I only love it when the outcome is good, meaning, only when my phone doesnt hit the ground. Its like a sample of that feeling you get when running away from a pitbull in your neighborhood. The suspense reminds me of one of those thrillers from the
20th century. Thats when thrillers were thrillers.

As its happening(the phone falling), I can only think of the glass on both sides shattering and my life being ruined. Its a rather heartbreaking feeling, but all I have to do is catch it. The satisfaction is almost better than sex.

I know, I know, my life must be boring and tremendously sad to post such insignificant garbage, but I know the "Almost Dropped naked iPhone" feeling is not just exciting to me. There are more of you......or maybe there isnt.

smh........Maybe Im just wierd.

LOL. ok, I exaggerated

I know, just was giving you a hard time ;)

I've had it happen a couple of times though where I almost dropped my naked iPhone but caught it and thanked my lucky stars.

At first I was stressed about it, but nowadays I simply would pay the $199 or less and get a brand new one from the Apple store.

$199 would suck but I've only ever dropped my phone once (I was drinking, which I rarely do).

At the alternatives section.
i get that rush just by thinking about it.



i refuse to put a cheap plastic cover on such a sleek device but the notion of it hitting the ground is the same as when you place your hand in your back pocket looking for your wallet and not finding it. then remembering you left it in your other jeans.

That would be soooo much easier to read if it used, you know, punctuation.

That being said, at least your iPad wasn't tossed. That would've killed me

I know, I've been asked to use punctuation several times. I've just got used to chatting with friends that know it's a lost cause to ask me to use propper grammar and punctuation. I will try to use it more lol but I can't make any promises

That's why I never have my iPhone naked, unless I'm giving it a quick clean with my microfiber towel. It stays wrapped up, always.
