Bombshell – Day 23
My family and I are going away for Thanksgiving and as a Bombshell, I felt like the luggage I’ve been using for the last ten years just won’t do. For one thing, it’s a giant yellow North Face duffel bag which instantly wrinkles all my clothes and that I usually wear as a big dorky backpack so that my hands are free to hold children’s hands in busy airports. I can’t imagine throwing that thing on my back wearing a pencil skirt. And for another thing, the goats peed on my North Face bag a few months ago and try as I might, I’ve never really been able to get the smell out. And if you’re keeping score, this would be reason number 110 on the least of “reasons to avoid getting goats”.
So I went back to Skirt Chaser today and bought this —
New luggage! When I look at this luggage, little heart bubbles pop above my head. It’s from the 1950s. It’s Samsonite. And it was only 30.00. Here’s the inside —
It’s pink with white polka dots. I was so geeked out over this luggage that I looked up old Samsonite ads to see if I could find it — and well, I found my luggage and so much more!
Okay, who wrote this ad? I had to read it several times before I got it… “Girls who rate second looks”? It’s almost like Yoda — Rate second looks girls do...
This Samsonite ad is just crazy, plain and simple… I’m sorry, but is that a bullfighting scene on your clothes?
And this is my favorite ad. Why? Because I just love anything with cut out people heads — you just can’t go wrong with cut out people heads… especially when the people heads are larger than airplanes and dueling Santas like in this ad.
So, good-bye peed on North Face duffel bag. I hope someone buys you from the Goodwill where I dropped you off — preferably someone with a very bad sense of smell and a great desire to travel while wrinkled.
And hopefully, someone who just loves essence of goat.
