Well it was just a question everyone, didnt mean to come off as some arrogant guy trying to scam a company.
Regardless, tomorrow I am making the voyage to my "local" Apple store to talk to the reps there and see what they can do for me.
And yes, I will be telling them the truth

I agree with @BizFox. Honestly is the best policy at the Genius Bar (for the most part). Once the water strip comes in contact with water, it changes color. It's pretty definitive. There's really no way to get around it.
You should just tell the Genius that you accidentally got the phone wet. Ask if there's anything they can do. It really all depends on the Genius you get and their mood. I know people who have gone to the same Apple Store with the same problem, but had different outcomes (e.g. one of my coworkers dropped his iPhone --cracked screen-- and the Genius gave him a new iPhone on the spot because it was "the first time.").
Just be honest, keep your fingers crossed, and just see what they say. Whatever will be, will be.
