I have a wonderful Timbuk2 messenger bag. It works very well when I’m riding my bike, because it has this second strap. You clip the strap across your torso to prevent the bag from shifting forward when you’re riding.

When I’m not on my bike, that extra strap hangs loose. I try to stuff it in the bag, but sometimes it falls out anyway and I can feel it swinging behind me when I walk.

At first this annoyed me, but I now think of it as my tail. Like most people, I’m insanely jealous of animals with tails. Now, at least when I have my bag, I get to see how the other half lives. Let me tell you, it’s pretty sweet.josh-has-a-tail

I am one step closer to being like Mr. Cat, as shown above.

I’m back! Miss me?

You know, I’ve always wanted a tail, but then I could never decide what kind would be best. Long and swishy, scaly and powerful? The obvious answer of course is: scorpion.


Heck yeah! As far as I can tell, you’re my only reader.

Scorpion tail is a wise choice, my friend. Wiser than wise.

Funny story about the bag…I originally wanted it to be UPS colors. I thought it would be funny to be mistaken for a mail carrier. But when I was cycling through the colors I hit on that combination and liked it a lot better. Turns out, I wasn’t the only one.

I don’t have white guy dreadlocks, so hopefully there is no confusion to people on the street.
