To Betty (my backpack)...
You've given me over 10 years of literally "getting my back". You've held it all, my most deepest secrets, even my undies.
You were there at all of my travels, you were there during my "get fit" phase, you were there waiting patiently at all of my dance rehearsals and you were there at a number of my performances, I can't thank you enough. You've also got the "pass" at many o security checks at the airport and at concerts.
It looks like our road has finally come to an end, and the final draw was when your zipper broke on me, revealing all of my goodies for everyone in public to see.
You have been replaced Betty by Blossom, but not to worry, you will always have a special place in my heart...err, on my back.
