Several years ago some scientist invented little plastic bags that closed at the top from the premise of two small grooves on one side of the bag and another single groove on the other side that snapped the two together while sliding your fingers simultaneously across the top of the bag. They seldom work without 15 to 19 tries causing blood blisters on one’s thumbs from smashing down so hard trying to close the bag. Usually the bag just gets thrown into the refrigerator unzipped. I have heard these bags are used in the military to frustrate enemies into talking… replacing the water boards previously used. You just make the prisoners try to snap these little plastic sacks together for about two hours…then they talk. I know I talk and say things long before two hours… but about the little bags.
Some of us did not get it and so they started making the two-groove side yellow and the single groove side blue and when properly closed the color would turn green. Like that is going to make it close any better… I rarely have seen one turn green… no, the bag, not me…I have turned green several times. Then for those of us who are really slow they invented the Ziplock…it is the same frustrating little bag with a zipper tab on the top to squeeze it together instead of lining up the little grooves. These work about 50% of the time, which is a great improvement.
The bags come in Snack, Sandwich, Quart… and many other sizes. I just want to warn you to stay away from all of them. If you read the very small print on the bottom of the bags it says, ‘may cause high blood pressure, anxiety attacks, irritable bowel syndrome, coughing, whizzing, fowl language…’ the list is quite long.
No, really, this is what happened.
