So I bought a new backpack...

I got a new backpack the other day in preparation for hefting my stuff for law school. I was very excited about searching for my pack, and I finally chose the North Face Recon pack, which has a lot of space, sternum and waist straps for stability (helpful because I plan to commute by bicycle), a sturdy construction and even an emergency whistle built in.

This morning I was getting ready to pack up my backpack, so I cut off the tags and made sure all the straps and zippers were ready to go. That is when I found this:


A plastic baggie with eight individually wrapped Summer's Eve Feminine Personal Cleansing Cloths! Inside my backpack! I quickly found Crystal to find out if they were hers and she had begun packing my backpack for me. They were not hers.

So, now my questions begin. Did someone use my backpack already, then return it? Did someone (some lady?) buy it, pack it up, decide to not use it, unpack it and return it? Is there someone out there that is very concerned about the personal hygiene of the general public, concerned enough to leave hygiene products hidden in various places at retail establishments?

Who knows? It is just kind of funny to me, over all.

The one concern I have, though, is that this is irrefutable proof that I bought a girl backpack. I'll be picked on by everyone in school!

That is awesome. Really what are the chances?

I'm sure the whistle will especially come in handy at Law School.

Ooo, how exciting, the new backpack! Is it possible a rape whistle (Ha, do you remember those?)

And WOW that is so funny about the cloths. I'd like to think it's a do-gooder randomly placing cloths into random items throughout the story.

Oh, how funny. That would kind of creep me out, though. But no, it doesn't look like a fem backpack. I think you'll be the cool kid at law school...not the fem one :)

Hopefully you will never fall down while you are wearing that backpack (Colon).
