Little but essential: the pocket pouch
Last week I lost my pocket pouch and today the new one arrived. (Thanks, Beau in customer service!) As I'm sitting in a town near Boston today, waiting out the manhunt for the Marathon bombers, the Tom Bihn delivery was the one bright spot in a day that was equal parts boring and nerve-wracking. My community is not under 'lockdown', but the public transit system was shut down, and we were all told not to go to work.
The pouch carries my T-pass and work ID. It was a free gift from TB that has become invaluable to me; so much handier than anything else for carrying these cards. Since the train pass has an RFID chip, it can be read through the pouch and doesn't have to removed. I think when I lost it I was sadder about losing the pouch than the cards inside. I'm really happy to have the new one! It's aubergine with a wasabi interior.
