I covet things.
Yes, I know that’s really anti-Buddhist teachings (and Christian, and most other religious belief systems) but it happens. And it’s usually bizarre things that I think are cool.
Like my friend Andrew’s messenger bag.
He has this small messenger bag (a murse, really) that he got in Canada decades ago. It’s a Team Canada Roots bag, and it’s totes super cute!
Every time I see it I think, “Damn, I want that!” Of course they’re impossible to find now.
The other day it suddenly popped into my head, so I hopped on eBay to look (as I am wont to do).
I did not find it.
But I did however, find this instead:
I just had to have it. So I got it. For a whopping 25 bucks!
It’s a Roots team Canada bag from the 2010 Vancouver Olympics! Tres cool, no? And it will be perfect for trips where I want to appear as anything but American!
