The bustle of New York that gets us thinking we need to carry around enough stuff for the next 12 hours – or two days. What about you? Whether you live in a city, the ‘burbs, or the straight-up countryside, do you cart around a big bag that could fit a small child, or do you limit your stuff and carry something a little more reasonable?
I tromp around Manhattan and Brooklyn (for work and for the rest of life, respectively) with an oversized Gryson bag slung over my shoulder. My sister does more or less the same thing (though she refuses to go to Brooklyn, ever) but takes it one step farther – she only carries the giant bag on her right shoulder. Her shoulders are now kind of asymmetrical.
