My Facebook friends may have already heard this but I started 2012 by accidentally spilling a full 20 ounce mug of hot tea directly on to my Macbook Pro. I did everything I could to stop the damage but it shut down about 30 seconds after the disaster. There was tea dripping from everywhere.... usb slots, disc drive, back seam, battery compartment.... it was bad.
I couldn't make it to Christiana or a Best Buy before closing (this was Sunday) so I had to leave it to drip dry overnight.
So.... why am I posting this in the "What Makes Me Happy Thread"?
Well, Justin at the Apple Genius Bar checked it out and started it up last night. After an extensive, system wide check, everything is functioning normally!!! I am literally shocked and amazed. Oh... and I wasn't charged for any of this. I was convinced it was a goner, I had even priced out a replacement online and placed it in my cart.
I'll keep my fingers crossed that everything keeps running smoothly........ ... it can still shit a brick.
I'm glad I don't use sugar in my tea or I would be dealing with sticky keys and a much bigger mess.
