I'm having flashbacks- either to school or to New Zealand, I'm not sure which. But for the past several days, every time I leave the house, it's felt weird that I wasn't carrying a backpack. I can understand that feeling with not carrying a purse, not wearing a watch . . . but I haven't had to carry a backpack for plural years. Perhaps it is wanderlust kicking in.

Or a subconscious desire for back pain? Perhaps not.

acid is a hell of a drug. and i know you were in NZ because you said backpack, not bookbag. I remember arriving at Baltimore and everyone would talk about their bookbags, and I thought they meant the little cotton bags we had to carry to library as 5 yera olds. If we forgot our book bags at home, we weren't allowed to borrow books. Now i'm having flashbacks!

I admit, I called it a bookbag when I was still in school. It made sense then, because I used it to carry books. But once I started using it for other things- like all of my possessions for a whole year- backpack it became. Precision of language overcame my Baltimore breeding!
