Today I spoke at an event here in Salt Lake.
I told a story about how, when I was eight, I thought fanny packs were actually fanny pats.
As in, I thought it was some portable cushion for bony rear ends.
At the end I discussed the fact that once I figured out that it was actually fanny pack, I came to love mine. Because it was the 80's and I was eight and fanny packs were cool. I actually said that.
Then, when the event was over, a dear woman stood up.
Wearing a fanny pack.
I'm not even kidding.
She is a refugee from Russia. Is it wrong for me to hope that the language barrier prevented her from being offended?
