Of course, I returned my piece-of-feces pack to REI today (it was purchased online and not one they stock in the stores). Can I just say I love that store? I would like to hang out in it all day and imagine all the trips I could take. And, yes, I'm aware I just nailed what they're going for. I decided to try on some of the packs in the store to see what I might think of getting for next time, and I learned two things about myself from the pack guy helping me out that I would like to stitch on a pillow and look at every day:
- I'm extra small...In backpacks, I am as small as they come (thank you, Italian heritage, for my short little Strega Nona torso!). I haven't been an extra small in anything since birth.
- ...And "all leg." On a related note, my short torso means I am "all leg," says pack guy. At 5'6'', that is not something I hear very often. I love it!
