Lets get a couple of things sorted before I continue;-
- I don't have a purse/handbag (or manbag).
- Because I'm a bloke.
Next I thought about my toolbox and I ask myself, how interested will a crowd of knittie heads be in an assortment of small spanners and and odd shaped bits of metal, not very.
Besides I don't carry that crap with me all the time.
So the question becomes this,
"What's it got in it's pockets, precious?"
£7.30 in change
half a pack of gum
and as always seems to be the way these days, some BB's
Nothing very interesting really.
Maybe blokes should have handbags, you know, so we can lug around little nick-knacks, old dolls, first aid kits, cameras, huge bunches of keys, ration packs, note pads, primus stoves, things that make "woo weep" noises, very small churches, apples, crayons, spare huge bunch of keys, tyre iron, kitchen sink etc etc
But I'm not the one to champion the manbag I'm afraid, my wrist isn't limp enough.
"But surely you carry stuff in your wallet?"
Yes I do and stop calling me Shirley.
Just the usual suspects I'm afraid. A variety of plastic cards, some receipts, an expired video club card for a shop 264 miles to the South, some cash, a six pack of stamps (containing 2), an ear bud, a small piece of blank paper and finally a small cocktail stick.
On the up side this little exercise has given me the opportunity to weed my wallet and get rid of all the useless detritus that I don't need or use like the receipts, one of the plastic cards that has gone past it's date, the video card and the stamps.
