The hermetic and liberating qualities of a huge Ziploc bag

[Dear Mom -- Thank you for purchasing this 10-gallon, XL Ziploc bag for my trip to Africa. Apparently, thanks to the miracle of blue + red = purple technology, you can fit five months' worth of clothes in one disposable, recyclable bag. Or, if you're the woman on the Ziploc box cover, you can fit figure skates, a football, a soccer ball, a frisbee and a basketball in one of these bags. Sound like she's got a busier (sportier), and more eclectic weekend ahead of her than I do. Love, John | PS: See you tonight for the screening of "Madagascar," the movie. This is getting really real ...]
