It's been said that you can tell a lot about a person by how clean their car is (on the inside), or what books are on their bookshelves, or CDs in their collection.
I wonder if that applies to purses?
In a moment of "can't find it" panic the other day, I dumped the contents of my purse.
Kirk needed me to find my prescriptions that needed filling -- now. (I'd already "forgot" several times). After several minutes of rummaging through the chaos, I finally dumped the bag.
The rush of shame as the contents cascaded onto the floor was magnified as the onlooker --my husband, slowly shook his head, saying things like, "I just can't believe you have money thrown in there." Oh, just a few dollar bills (and a 10 spot) ...not a big deal.
Crazy thing is, I like things neat and organized. I just have a hard time keeping up with stuff. It must be the 40 hour a week job. Yeah, that's it.
To quote a favorite U2 Song..."I still haven't found what I'm looking for" --- is all I could think when I came up empty on the prescriptions.
However, I did find:
3 Advil, 3 grocery lists, emery board, camera, phone & charger, comb, many receipts, coupons, my datebook, lip gloss, lipstick,$13, 2 pencils, 6 pens, church bulletin, church hand-out cards, floss, Victoria's Secret card for a free panty, an earring that isn't mine (but I thought it was, so I took it from lost+found), 3 slips of paper with window measurements, Panera card...you get the idea!
So, what's the most unusual or embarrassing item in your purse, wallet, computer bag, backpack?
