I remember once when I was four or five years old, I was going to run away from home. I put some underoos, GI Joes and Little Debbies in a bandana and tied it to a stick. I thought that's the way you traveled when hitchhiking.
I wonder how my life would have turned out if I hadn't turned around a block into the run-away?
What about the idea of someone walking along with all their belongings tied in a bandana to the end of a stick. Has anyone ever seen that in real life? It's kind of like seeing someone go to bed wearing a gown and a pointy jester-like sleeping cap thing. Only in cartoons or old movies.
