aka Fanny Pack

Remember these?

The fanny pack, not Hulk Hogan

Apparently, they've been making a comeback. Since 2006. However, now they're going by the oh-so-glamorous "waist bag", "hip bag" or even "belt bag". But don't be fooled, its definitely still a fanny pack. Apparently, at one point, even Marc Jacobs got in on the act.

Yeah, still a fanny pack.

From my mocking tone, it should be pretty obvious that I have a VERY strong dislike for fanny packs, regardless of what they're being called now. Here's the problem. I've found that I need one. ONLY for walking the dogs. With a leash in each hand, its very difficult to hold my keys and iPhone, especially if I'm wearing something without pockets! So, I had to breakdown and get one

EEEEEKKKKK! Please don't judge me.

My family still tries to get together each year for a vacation w/ all my siblings. The last couple of years, my parents have purchased matching fanny packs for all of us w/ the destination embroidered on the front. We have all worn them together for one day on the vacation just to entertain ourselves and get a few laughs. I'm a tongue and cheek fanny pack fan.

Biggie: That is acceptable.
A) its purchased by parents
B) it's tongue-in-cheek
C) its for family. If it makes them happy, it's ok. Sorta!
