...of what had fallen overboard. Tools? That’s happened more than once, but this time I wasn’t using any. It sounded fairly heavy.
I had been leaning over at a fairly acute angle…did something fall out of a pocket? I patted myself down and that’s when I realised I had just lost my iPhone in 30 feet of Pacific Ocean. I was angry. I was hurt by this unfair, callous treatment by Fate. I even wanted to blame my wife, as she had bought me this jacket, one with horribly inadequate pockets lined with a satin material that makes it wet-ice slippery to anything made of hard plastic....
