I Dropped it into the Toilet

I usually carry my pedometer everywhere with me... and it serves both as a way of counting my steps over an entire week and serves as a watch at the same time. Well, a few days ago it fell into the toilet bowl. 

Yes, I managed to fish it out, wrapped it in tissue and then took a look. Yes, there was water inside. I had heard somewhere that you could put items into a bowl of rice and that the rice would somehow draw out the moisture and said item, would work again.

Nope, it sat in rice for nearly a week and it's still not working.  I miss that little gadget :(  I guess that I will have to break down and buy one that fits on the wrist. At least it won't end up falling into the toilet!
