So my friend and I were out shopping yesterday. He had always admired my messenger bag, and for his birthday I decided I would get him one. We went into this really cool store, and this really pretty girl about our age was helping us.
She had walked us to the back of the store where there were a variety of colorful bags. As she was talking to us about our various options, my friend took a bag off the shelf and leaned over towards me.
"Hey," he said, "I heard girls really like inquisitive guys. Maybe I'll ask her why this bag has such an unnecessarily large handle."
"Don't do it," I said, "it's a strap."
