|If we remember to bring the bags into the store we have plenty.|
And we keep getting more bags -- store promotions, whims, a new color set, a particular relative humidity -- and the reasons just keep coming.
Usually this is my place to complain and say that I wish all the bags could be thrown away and I would have one burlap sack which I would carry as I walked barefoot to the farmers market, grunting and spitting every step of the way.
Not quite. The bags have become ubiquitous tools, at times replacing luggage or food storage containers. I am waiting for the challenge of transporting water or a refreshing beverage in one of the hardier models.
The system works for us, despite how ridiculous it looks.
