Dear Wendy,

Please don't make me wear this when we go to Ethiopia.

Love,
Truly Horrified

P.S. Dirt is already plotting to steal this from me for fishing purposes, he says he has no shame when it comes to fishing (but we already knew this, ahem, bike-riding to remote fishing spot)

Is that a fanny pack?!?!? I thought those things were extinct! You know across the pond people still use them and you will be all the rave! LOL!

MaineMom said...

Yes, that is a FANNY PACK. However, it is a North Face FP. If we are going to be "cool" lets at least go name brand.

Tell Jerms he can have it after Africa. Until then, GET USED TO IT SISTAH.

You may just learn to love it.

..that's my biggest fear of all! What if I love it? It is smart, secure, and convenient.

Do they come in Coach?

Can't wait to see a pic of you wearing the fanny pack! :)

Question: Why do they call it a fanny pack? You're supposed to wear the pouch in the front, no?

MaineMom said...

Actually Jill they were traditionally worn in the back or the "fanny" area. However, with pick-pocketers and the like, we will need to keep ours in the front.

Plus, they will serve us well when we do our animal balloon show!!

I had my first fanny pack experience this summer in FL on our vacation -- must say, I LOVED it. I had never used one before, nor since, but when the need is there is it is a wonderful accessorie.

p.s. -- I belive Coach does have a fanny pack.

This is a LIFE saver in country, unless you have one that hangs around your neck? We wore them under our clothes, next to our skin with our passports and money in them....Carole's husband Dean (The Wardrobe and the White Tree blogspot) had a good one, that hung around his neck and he could put it down his shirt if needed.

Justin Timberlake may have brought sexy back, but we are bringing the fanny pack back.

Embrace it Rhonda.

Oh NO, Erin! Not the dreaded fanny pack. So functional and yet so offensive. LOL

Grandma said...

You'll never see a fanny pack on this body!!!!!! If I had to use one I would somehow secure it to my arm or leg or nose, but not around that fanny.

Lo said...

but it's northface!!!! and that = expensive.

i feel ya. although for an entirely selfish purpose, i need a bag for when i go to disneyworld. and i'm... doin' the flat messenger-style bag. i know you can't do that. hey you ever think about those 'under the clothes' euro travel things? i totally used one when i traveled to europe and it worked beatifully.

and i hardly think the fashion police in ethiopia will care!
