It makes me sad to imagine somebody in the Post newsroom going around to various DC area places where the youngs hang out and looking for people with cracked cell phone screens and then asking about them.

I'm not sure which is worse.

1) You posting a link to this crap.
2) Me clicking it and reading the whole article.
3) This quote at the end.

The fragility of the phone means, you cracked it, Bauerlein says, but, look, it still works!

“So it survived,” Bauerlein said. “And that extends to you. You’re worldly wise. You have a kind of toughness. You’re a survivor.”
I'd say 3) but 2) probably wins out 'cause I could have stopped at any time.

I got wasted and dropped my phone in the toilet at the bar last week. But it still works. I'm a survivior.
