It’s the first day of public school in these parts. Driving out of the neighborhood this morning, I noticed that many of the kids had backpacks with wheels.
What are they transporting in those things? I got through 12 years of school without a backpack. In fact, it was considered very uncool to use a backpack or bookbag of any kind. And then I got to college, and backpacks were cool. But that is a different issue.
I don’t think offering to carry a girl’s backpack is going to be quite as effective as a first move as offering to carry her books.
