Remember how in middle school, the nurse would check everyone for scoliosis? Well one year, the nurse thought I might have it and wanted to send me to some special doctor to get my back looked at. The nurse said my heavy backpack and “one-strapping” it was hurting my back. So what did my parents do? They made me use a rolling backpack! Ugh! Those things were the worse. I had come up with a master plan to get rid of it…with the help of my friends, we were going to break it. We’d give each other rides on it and jump off curbs with it, and on one glorious day, it finally broke! I took it to my dad and acted all sad about breaking my backpack (I didn’t want to get in trouble for doing it on purpose) and guess what?! He got out some tools and fixed it! I swear that thing was indestructible! I finally went to the doctor and he said my back was good and I finally broke the rolling backpack beyond repair so I got to go back to my regular cool backpack. The doctor did tell me that from then on, I needed to wear my backpack properly and I think nowadays the kids are “two strapping” it but I’m a 90’s kid and I just can’t help but stick with the one strap. Old habits die hard.
P.S. This backpack also has top handles so it can be carried like a purse too 🙂
