Everyone should have a punching bag.
Something to kick, punch, scream
At the top of your lungs
And unleash that negative energy so you don’t have to carry it around.
But make sure you get the right bag.
One that can take the
Damage that you plan on
High quality, durable materials
With seams that won’t split
When you deliver blow after
If the material is wrong, your punching bag
Will fall apart. Or worse.
Your punching bag could raise up his shirt
And reveal a barrage of bruises and abrasions.
Sure, you can sew those split seams up
And provide patches to repair the damage,
But that bag will never quite be the same.
It now carries scars and weak spots.
So before you start belting your
Punching bag, be sure it is one that
Swings from a chain
And not one that stands on two feet.
