OK, so if you’re like me, you like to play hooky every once in a while. And although technology has made many elements of modern life easier, it is something of a double edged sword. Take for instance, the extent to which wireless devices and ubiquitous WiFi has made it less possible to truly disconnect. Hooky used to be about leaving the classroom behind. But with today’s technology, hooky now involves at least faking the appearance of being where you’re supposed to be. You’re really at the beach, but you bring your tablet and log in so that it seems like you’re at home, dutifully working or studying medical billing online classes – just, from the beach instead of your bedroom.
With this in mind, assuming that most of you will likely play hooky at least one day this Summer season, we’re providing you with the following list of innovative beach hacks to make your beach experience more enjoyable (courtesy of Yahoo! Makers).
- Place Your Touch Screen Cell Phone in a Ziplock Bag
- Attach Your Keys to a Cork, So They Float
- Keep Money in an Empty Chapstick, Magic Marker (or even a diaper) for Safe Keeping
- Lie on a Fitted Sheet to Keep Out Sand
- Sneak Beer on the Beach by Hiding It in a Soda Cup
