The Carpetbagger

Ricki has a tendency to look like a carpetbagger: someone carrying their life’s holdings in some bags. Each day as she goes to school, she assembles TONS of “must-take” stuff. It becomes, in practical terms, her school bag PLUS two other bags full of junk.

I used to fight with her about it, but lately haven’t, as she would generally not want to give in, and fighting only made her miss her car.
Now her teacher wrote that they are making a campaign with prizes for Ricki, to only bring ONE bag to school. What can I say? As I wrote the teacher: “I am VERY VERY pleased…..”
