Am I a dork? You decide...

So today I had to bring a bunch of books into work. Cade is using my backpack for day camp, so I had to find another bag that would work. Grocery bags wouldn't work because they are heavy textbooks. So I went to my closet to see what other bags I own that might work. And what would better to use than my old Esprit bag?

Yes, I have kept my Esprit bag for 16 years now. It is black with lovely 80's multi-color lettering. It was the 2nd one I owned & is still in pretty good condition. My 1st one was fuchsia with white lettering. The last time I used it was in 8th grade when they were the "cool" thing to carry.

So now you get to decide whether or not I am a complete dork for keeping it. And would I be an even bigger dork if I started using it for my excersise bag???

(Oh, and in case you are wondering, Esprit still makes the bag, go here to see!)

I think you're a dork no matter what kind of bag you use. :) It's a family trait! That is one o-l-d bag. Almost a retro, classic kind of thing now.

Ah esprit. I wore my oversized esprit sweatshirt and leggings until they wore. the. hell. out. My mother was practically begging to take them away from my 6th grade self. I think it's awesome that you have such retro coolness.
