I thought I'd issue my report on whiskey Edith who arrived today like she did for many others after much anticipation - even stayed home to meet the fedex driver (cough, cough). Some of this is on tFS so pardon the repeat... Edith arrives and I freak and can't open the box for like 30 minutes, but then she comes out and I pretty quickly start scratching my head over her. Very pretty but.... a lot stiffer than I expected? Hmmm. And the zipper stops - thought they were a little flimsy and worry they won't hold up under use? Is this like what I hear the paddy zippers were like the first season? :unsure: Well I had to show up at work at some point, so Edith and I were separated a few hours. Then when I get home I immediately open the boxes and bag to take another gander at Edith. But no overwhelming maternal feelings, again. Unload paddy and put belongings in Edith. Set on table. And she just stands there - kind of like a 2-year old standing, but still standing, ya know - and I'm thinking how weird is that because I'm accustomed to Chloes (paddys) plopping! Take a look in the mirror - really pretty but even though Edith is a 'casual' briefcase, I think it's still too brief-casey for my uber-casual town and lifestyle. Not sure I would ever feel at ease carrying it. Then the cell phone rings. I had put cell in front pocket and buckled because the only person who calls is my mother and I don't mind missing her calls And whaddya know, by the time I get into the pocket and retrieve my phone it had gone to message and yes, it was my mother. So Edith passed that test In the long run Edith isn't for me, and I was so excited to be excited again like I was when I opened my first paddy... maybe that means I just need another one of those And I think it's great that the people who love their Edith's will be more unique on the streets!
