Given to Sande from Melissa.
"How many bags does it take to get to the center?"
The committee of one at the Great White Elephant Exchange learned a little something about bags today.  I was originally going to call this a messenger bag, but it would be more apt to call it a sling bag.  A sling bag is a type of handbag that rests on the low back and worn over one shoulder with a strap that winds around the chest.  A messenger bag is a bit more heavy duty with more compartments and buckles and snaps and that kind of thing; bike messengers use them today as did riders in the Pony Express.  You wouldn't call this a satchel either as a satchel, though similar, is used predominately for carrying books.  This little nipper could carry a sandwich and hand cream and still make you look classy.

-Are you ever confused when people talk about sand wedges or sandwiches?:  Confusion has not arisen--yet.  Although they both go well on the golf course.

-Why is your name spelled with an 'e' instead of a 'y'?:  There were a lot of girls named Sandy growing up and my mom wanted to name me something that would be a little different from everyone else.

-Take the letters of your name and come up with a new word and its definition: Snade- someone who behaves in a dishonest way or criminal manner
