Tote As Transport

Random experiences at the cash register have convinced me that I have a social obligation to surprise and amuse the check-out person. The following have been hits: the prototype lime-green nylon tote from The Great Big Hiking Co-op, a uniquely pleated self-folding blue and red-violet polyester gauze bag from SAM, and an action print from the comic store at the Market. The comic print has handles that spare fine motor skills when the tote is full.

Motorized bikers taught me that no one machine is ideal for all applications. The same seems to be true for totes. It no longer feels self-indulgent to survey the options hanging near the door. I scan the shopping list to see which bag to choose -30-
