EVANSTON – A Biology 215 textbook became slightly water damaged today, when textbook owner Andrew Coble knocked over his open water bottle.
“I was studying at the library,” said Coble, a Weinberg freshman, “when I decided to get up to go to the bathroom. As I rose to my feet, my hand knocked into my water bottle.”
The water bottle then fell over, spilling its contents – water – onto the table Coble had been sitting at. The water spread quickly, quickly dampening Coble’s Biology textbook, Essential Genetics: A Genomics Perspective.
“I didn’t have any paper towels!” moaned Coble, remembering his inability to clean up his mess.
Pages 177-362 were damaged near the top of the book, and page 176 was splashed slightly. After drying, the textbook is expected to make a full recovery, though its pages will never lie perfectly flat again.
“I’ve learned my lesson,” Coble said, explaining his plan to prevent future accidents by always screwing the cap back on after taking a sip.
BREAKING: Rumors have just surfaced that Coble managed to drop his iPhone into the toilet while attempting to wipe himself and play Angry Birds simultaneously.
