Do you ever wonder what is in other people’s purse/handbag/brief case/messenger bag/whatever.
I would love it if all bags were open to me and I could rummage around to my heart’s content. Can you imagine the hours and hours of fun that could be had. The things that you would find out.
Purses, especially change purses, can be dangerous. My Auntie Jane let me play with her change purse while we were sitting at a Billy Graham crusade many years ago. We were in a large building….there was a concrete floor…..and at just the appropriate silent point….I dropped the purse and change.
I was scarred for life.
Where am I going with this you ask? I am meandering but I do have a point. A dull and deeply disturbing point but a point.
I am going to let you see what is in my purse.
Now don’t be scared. Don’t run away screaming. Embrace the fear. Look deep into the purse and see, little grasshopper, what might be lurking there.
I took the pictures because I wanted to post them in the Flickr group Whats in your bag. The pictures absolutely fascinate me and I can’t stay away.
Seriously, how do some of these people with like three things in their purse or bag survive in life. Do they have to rely on the kindness of strangers for a kleenex or the basics of life.
I just couldn’t do it…….as you will see.
So as of 2:30p on Tuesday August 18th this is what was contained in my purse. I had to stand on the step ladder to get a good aerial view. Lets look close shall we.
I live by the phone, I die by the phone. It is just a basic phone. No bells and whistles. No internet or wifi. But I couldn’t do without him. The ibrick sitting right next to “Red” is a useful tool sort of. It is HHBL’s cast off iphone. The wifi no longer works and obviously it isn’t an iphone anymore but it still is very handy indeed.
Just in case I need to file, cut or stab something. You laugh but more than once someone was astounded when I pulled out a small utility knife and opened something up. I bet I could do basic surgery.
Anyone up for me to try?
One can never have enough pens. I have a particular fondness for Sharpie pens.
I am a bear of very little brain and I need a small recorder so that I can record the things that pop up in my brain when I am driving around. It has saved my bacon more than once.
I also have this little thing so that I can write things down when the car is not in drive. I love the lime green color. It makes me happy.
Hello, never go anywhere without a camera. You never know what you might see.
You never know when you might need to measure something. I love this thing.
Oh I love Maglight flashlights. I have several and I can’t seem to keep myself from buying more. They are so heavy and sturdy and dependable.
Hello I live in the Frozen Northeast Ohio. Carmex, especially cherry flavor, is the balm that soothes my savaged lips. HHBL appreciates it.
And of course my super duper cool reading glasses. The progeny LOVE when I wear them.
So know that I have bared all so to speak, what’s in your bag?
Come on you can tell me. We are friends. I won’t tell anyone.
