I'm one of those hyper-prepared fellows, so I have to have everything with me all the time. And in my long-ago school days, anyone, male or female, who carried their stuff - books, notebooks, lunch, gym gear, extra socks - would have been hooted back to the playground, or beyond.
But now they are the thing, all the kids seem to have them, and I admit to a certain jealousy, because they surely make lugging all your kit and kaboodle around much easier.

School is back in session now, and I guess I'll see that studious girl who lives up at the top of our court coming home from the bus stop. The poor young lady carries so much in her backpack, she looks like the guy on the Led Zeppelin 4 album, climbing that stairway...
It's not too late for me to get in on the backpack fun, doggone it!
