One time, after meeting No Doubt and taking pictures with them, my good friend Gata dropped my camera in all our excitement. It was new at the time, but I really didn't fret. I think I was just more happy that we just met Gwen. And probably more worried about the film we just took. We tried getting it fixed under warranty, but the warranty did not cover problems due to it being dropped. And we couldn't hide the scratches near the problem itself, the flash mechanism. But Gata so nicely paid to have it fixed for me, and that was that. It was really no biggie.
Well, just recently I got a new camera. Last night I had my mom take a picture of me after Erica so expertly did my makeup. (Could I have a make up artist live with me full time!) After snapping the picture, she dropped it. Yeah, you heard right: SHE DROPPED IT! The lens was out, it slammed to the tile floor with this horrible noise that still echoes in my head. I was devastated. One of my buttons gets stuck slightly when pressed and that irked the heck out of me. Anyway, of course the warranty does not cover that so I put it out of my mind for a while and then felt silly after getting so worked up over a material thing. In my clear thinking I took out a metal clip that I had, and worked with the metal surrounding the button. Voila! The button no longer gets stuck.
All in all, I was annoyed that it happened, and that will probably be the last time I ask my mother to take a picture again, but at least the camera is okay - for now.
I really have the worst misfortune when it comes to cameras!
The fateful picture. Ha ha.
