It was SO much better than watching grass grow . . .

We all live in the digital era. We take pictures on our cell phones and send them to each other in an instant. We can fit a TON of images on one tiny memory chip and not have to worry about ruining our vacation pics going through airport security. I don't even have to wait an hour to see if my double chins are showing in that last shot!

And yet WHY am I so sad to say goodbye to my I-Zone?? I knew it was coming.

Shake it, shake it like a Polaroid picture! How much fun it was to shake and shake and watch the image appear? *sigh*

When I read that Polaroid will stop making instant film, I immediately went online to stockpile on film for my oh-so-much-party-fun I-Zone cameras. I discovered that I wasn't the only one. $20 (+ s&h) for 12 images? Yeah, no. It's time to say goodbye now.

Goodbye classic Polaroids. Goodbye my first i-zone camera and my second with the interchangeable color plates. How I loved you. The instant fun. The sticker film. The FORTUNE cookie film that told you your fortune while you waited for the image to develop. *sniff* Polaroid, you rocked my world.

I'll miss Polaroids too. I had one of those mini cameras. Fun for parties.
