A quick getaway?


Momentary Thought

It's either this, or my taste in purses has changed to a smaller dimension.


High: Got another submission for Storyteller!

Low: Slow, stupid drivers really pissed me off at lunch today.

Current Obsession

Finals tomorrow night.

Calvin, and something he did while on the phone with me, coming home from Flagstaff. No, I won't say what it was.

Dramatis Personnae
Who I Read
  Just a short entry today, since I wasn't really planning on updating. Too much stuff to do and not enough time to do it in... yadda yadda yadda. You know the drill.

A thought struck me, though, out of the blue. It's about the contents of my purse. Yeah, I know. Freak. Hear me out.

When I was in high school, the contents of my purse included:

  • Hairbrush
  • Hairspray
  • Compact
  • Book
  • Notebook
  • Pen
  • Calculator
  • Wallet
  • Change Purse
  • Walkman
  • A half dozen tapes
  • Gum
After I was married to X(m), the contents changed:

  • Checkbook
  • Hairbrush
  • Hairspray
  • Deodorant
  • Feminine products
  • Gum
  • A travel toothbrush
  • A book
  • A notebook
  • An organizer/datebook
  • A cell phone
And today, my purse's entire contents:

  • Wallet
  • Cell phone
  • Chapstick
  • Tylenol
That's it. And what that tells me is, I don't feel like I have to be packed and ready for flight every second. I don't have to take the bare necessities with me wherever I go, "just in case." In other words, I feel safe, and stable, and happy.

Huh. Psycho-analysis based on the contents of a purse.

Original content belongs to ME. Exceptions are noted.
