Ah, a day in the life of the Buttons. My dad says that we can have fun doing *anything*. I think it's true.

...a few weeks ago Amanda accidentally dropped her i-Pod in the toilet. Tragedy of tragedies, I know. She was so upset and I felt really bad for her. We bought it for her for Christmas and it was the new model with some new features and it was probably the nicest present we've ever bought for her. So the hunt was on for some remedy to the water inside. She went to the Mac Authority and they told her to try putting it in a bag of rice to get the moisture out (the real trick according to Travis is if you do drop an i-Pod or cellphone in water is to turn it off immediately and do not turn it back on for several days. Apparently turning it on and trying to use it fries the circuits or something like that). So she grabbed some rice from the pantry and put her beloved i-Pod in for a few days and...nothing. Bummer. But a few days after that I found the bag of rice back in the pantry. The rice that the i-Pod was in. The i-Pod that fell into the toilet. I don't think that I need to tell you that I'm not serving toilet water rice to my family. But I also thought it was reeeaaallly funny. So I wrote a little note on the bag and stuck it to her bedroom door. Hilarity ensued. She thought it was reeeaaaallly funny too. Seriously, I almost fell on the floor laughing.
