  1. Oh, come now. The pages might curl, and the ink might run a bit, but all is not lost.

  2. As a mom, I found it a bit unlikely that a Mom would have her laptop open, unattended, with kids and water balloons running around it. And the Treo next to it, so any bum at the park could swipe it.
    How about if Mom is actually sitting at it trying to get some work done at the park while her kids are running around? Then the water balloon, or even a water bottle gets knocked by a frisbee or ball.
