Ok, it's kind of a weird story- but bare with me. I am an attorney, and one of my favorite clients came in today with a cake, an apple (because she knew I would not eat much of the cake) and handed me what I think is a 2005 Chocolate Paddington Shoulder Hobo. She hands me the bag and says "this is for you to "borrow"! Borrow? I have no idea what this means, but think she may have said that because she did not want to put me in an akward situation with getting/receiving a gift from a client (for ethical reasons). I of course said that I could not accept it, and she persisted and said that if I did not take it, she would throw it out! Sac relig, I know, so I graciously accepted her offer to "borrow" the bag. It is perfect on the outside, with some wear on the inside. But the leather is just TDF, and of course, it is chocolate so I feel instantly in love. I will post pics later, but thought you might get a kick out of the story.
