Dear Linda at Bar Mitzvahzilla, one of my all time favorite blogs, passed on the 'What's in Your Bag' challenge.
I have thought a lot about what's in my little, black patin leather bag a long time and wondered what it says about me.
My contents are quite simple--but I'm anything but simple.
1. my ordinary cellphone
2. a worn out pierre dieux satchel with a few credit cards, my driver's license and insurance cards
3. reading glasses, because I'm old
4. one tampon, because I'm old (have I ever told you that before) and I never now when I'm going to get my period because I'm at that old lady stage of life
That's about it. EXCEPT I have lots of crumpled up receipts. So, you see I think I am quite organized in the most disorderly way.
AND THERE IS ONE MORE THING THAT GIVES ME AWAY COMPLETELY. I have very few things in my bag, I know, but this one thing, well, it speaks volumes. I have an old, empty Pepsid bottle that I have filled with the "just in case" meds. For example, I have some pretty normal 'just in case' meds. Just in case my son's leg starts to hurt (he was born with a disease that causes benign bone tumors in his left leg), I have advil. Just in case my stomach gets upset from worrying about my son's leg, Tums and a Pepcid. But then it starts to get interesting. Just in case one of my kids gets stung by a bee and they start to go into anaphylaxis shock (they have never had this reaction but I don't think Will has ever been stung by a bee, so just in case) Benadryl. Just in case I'm having a heart attach, a baby aspirin. Just in case someone else is having a heart attack, a second baby aspirin.
I'm a walking pharmacy. And just in case my back starts to hurt I stuff all this into the lightest little bag possible.
Now what does this say about me. Don't need a degree in psychology to figure this one out!
I would love to know what's in Kathleen's bag from www.kathleenbuckstaff.com, in Judy's purse from justonefoot.blogspot.com, and in Theresa's pocketbook from firstname.lastname@example.org
I would also so love to know your psychological evaluation of me based on the contents of my bag!
