Review– Tom Bihn Super Ego Messenger Bag
Without delving too deeply into Freud’s structural models of the psyche, I would like to discuss the Super Ego as it relates to the ID. When we’re talking about personalities, the Superego and Id relate much in the way that the little angel and little devil coexist on the shoulders of characters in animated cartoons: the Id tells Daffy Duck to screw over his friend Bugs while the Superego tries to talk some sense into him. When we’re talking about Tom Bihn messenger bags, the Super Ego is everything the ID is and much, much more. If you could order the ID bag via a Tom Bihn drive-thru window, and if you could order it “super sized”, when you reached the last window, the guy in the paper hat would hand you a Super Ego.
