What Was in Your School Bag as a Student?

*Disclaimer: This leather bag is the school bag I wish I had when I was in school.  The one below looks more like the one I had, possibly purchased at Balogun market.

Students carry all sorts of things in their school bags.  Apart from books.  Some students don't even carry a bag,  They just carry their books in their hands or put them in a nylon bag.

Assuming you had a school bag, and a teacher randomly stopped you and frisked you searched your bag (for contraband, maybe?) what would have been in it? Here is my list (please add yours):

  1. Exercise Books, Textbooks, Math Set and similar stuff (Duh!)
  2. Toothbrush doubling as hairbrush: Ladies, you know what I'm talking about, especially if you went to boarding school.  You (I) needed it for that 'all back' hairstyle with all that brushing ... 
  3. Novels: Either the ones I borrowed or owned.  The usual suspects were: Enid Blyton, etc.
  4. Tissue Paper: Because you have to errr ... bring your own for errr ... you know..
  5. Lunch: Probably none of these foods sha.
  6. Feminine Hygiene Products for the monthly visitor.
  7. Glass Case: Because I wore glasses.

Not in my bag: That Pocahontas pencil case.  Nope.  Didn't happen.

So, what was in your school bag? Oya, speak out!
