Thank you Borge Madsen...

 Oh, the temptation!

I am reading such a good book on my Kindle, and SO wanted to take it in the bath with me last night.  But after dunking a paper-and-ink book in the bath water a week or so ago, I just couldn't risk it.

That's when I received a little whisper of inspiration.  "You could read the screen and operate the buttons through a Ziploc."

Oh, the genius of a plastic-zippered bag!  Thank you Borge Madsen for inventing the plastic zipper, and all those with the vision to see what a marketing home run it could be (not to mention a gift to mankind!).

And thank you little voice of inspiration.


  1. I am impressed by your resourcefulness! LOL I don't have a Kindle yet, but have considered one someday. I know "C" is addicted to her Ipad, but I'll have to ask her if she takes it in the bath!

    Thanks for your comment today--your mom must have been one of those "wonder women"!

  2. NICE!!!!
    One giant ziplock for my laptop, please! I'll never have to leave the pool again! ('til September, anyway!)

  3. That is a fantastic idea but DO NOT TELL MY DAUGHTER! She will be in the bath listening to her Ipod and somehow or another, it will still get wet, I am sure! She is using my old phone because her phone (newer than my oldy) fell into a bucket of water - by accident - really! Lol!

    Nice to know I am missed when I don't post every few days, too! :)

    Cheers - Joolz
