School supplies

Handwritten page of a diary dated August 29, 2004

…  my niece says “this is retro, so it probably looks like a pencil bag you used in junior high, right?”

Actually it does kind of remind me of the TV show “Laugh In” but I had to explain to her that my pencil bag came with a plastic strip attached, with three holes punched into it. She asked why and I had to explain that we hadn’t thought of taking backpacks to school, so we had to make sure everything could be fastened into our three-ring binders … UNTIL the glorious ZIPPERED binder came along and then nothing would fall out — not pencils and not notes filled with gossip about the people sitting near you in study hall or the teacher who had the power to make you stay late.
