My husband returned home from indoor cricket and was complaining he must have left the front of his bag open and his sun glasses had fallen out onto the street. He then did a quick audit of his bag (something I wouldn't have done) and noticed his cordless head phones (that cost $75 that he bought with a gift voucher he got for his birthday from friends) were not in the bag. We both headed outside in to the slight drizzle with a torch (and differing attitudes towards if we would find them or not). Then my husband and his seeing in the dark capabilities point them out, as I shined the torch on them we noticed they were in a flowing rush of water down the gutter. My husband's words were "They are goners". Thinking of the rice trick you hear people use on their iPhones after dropping them in the toilet or fishbowl, we decided to give it a shot. As I pour in some of the kilo bag of rice that was on special for $2 I stopped and tried to move it around. I then stated I needed more and my husband asked me not to waste anymore as it wasn't going to work (really it cost $2 for all this rice that you don't even eat anyway, really, really?), I explained Cake's and I needed to colour some rice so we would just use that (then I got the go ahead). After a few hours we gave them a go and guess what they worked, yay! Suck it Mr negative!
