Weather seals giving me urges

I'm not sure what a psychologist would say about this, but my birthday was last week and I just received the WR version of the kit 18-55mm. Now I finally own a completely weather sealed camera! I have to admit, the urge to turn on film mode and just jump in the pool or dunk it into my hot tub when I get home from work is getting to be overwhelming.

How bad of an idea WOULD that be?

Weather-sealed, not waterproof, my friend!
Congrats on the gift.
A fine one.
Enjoy it responsibly!

LOL I know this feeling EXACTLY.

When it rains, sometimes I will forego the umbrella and get all wet so I can take out my Pentax camera and take pictures. Others will run for cover, and there I am taking some artsy fartsy shots.

I think MY psychologist would have a word with me... and all other camera users
