Canoeing

Dear Mr. Ziplock,
I don't know if you ever promised to keep my camera safe in a canoe-capsizing accident, but I've gotta say I think you gave me that impression. C'mon...the commercials with the shaking of the spaghetti sauce upside down in a baggie....magic.

So, now, after blow-drying my Ziplock-protected camera and still being unable to revive it, I'm left wondering why I ever trusted you.

Maybe I read too much into those promises you made. Maybe I should have read the warning signs. Still, I'm left with a camera that doesn't work and no pictures of this weekend's canoe trip.

I don't know who I'm more disappointed in - you, or myself for trusting you. Either way, I vow to never make the same mistake again.

See ya around....

So much for "truth in advertising" Gretchen! Mr. Ziplock has let me down many times as well. I am now a huge fan of space bags. They do tend to keep their promises.
Hope you find a good doctor for CPR for the camera!
