What's in Your Purse?

I am doing a game for a bridal shower that involves guests getting points for each weird thing they have in their purse that day. What are some bizarre things you carry around?

I need ideas!!

This is a one sided sexist question which excludes men. I am now going to throw a hissy-fit and stomp my feet in rage.

I usually just carry a tiny bag that doubles as wallet. However, when I go out to do landscape consulting I carry a little battery operated device that measures the pH and the mineral contents of soil. If you want a picture I can probably find one. The only other oddity would be a collapsable water bowl for my dog.

(We've got some weird men on this forum, weren't these guys also on the Victoria Secret Bra thread? I see a scary trend)

In order to assist you in your quest BD, I have grabbed my wife's purse and had a quick look.

A calculator
A small cuddly toy
One lettuce leaf
A notepad
Miniature binoculars
A small, folding trestle table
An incomplete picnic set
Hair tongs
Assorted underwear
A book "The female Orgasm"
Two toffee wrappers (rum and raisin)
Various office equipment, including a portable air conditioning unit
Tofu
An espresso coffee machine
Screwdriver and pliers
Six pairs of spectacles
Toilet roll
A complete set of cutlery and a small lipstick, that started vibrating when I picked it up.


I hope this helps.

Good luck with your quiz.

I agree....and think we should protest for an equal say about our......man satchells. :wink:

Doesn't it make a mess when you try to apply it?

I don't think we're weird.....at all. We see this as an important issue that affects all humans, no matter what gender.

After all, women shouldn't be excluded from "Automotive Korner", right?

Oh, c'mon, Ellpy! There's no shame in admitting that it's really your man satchell that you're rummaging through.

Let's stand shoulder to shoulder on this issue! Surely we can all hunker down and get to the bottom of this situation.

thinking back I recall mother carrying a 40000 pound purse and a canvas bag as well. Her purse contained the essentials, 4 or 5 plastic rain bonnets with those silly floral designs, a change purse for exact change in stores, a change purse for transit costs and phone calls, a change purse for helping the needy, 3 different combs, 1 hairbrush, a mirror, a compact, 3 or 4 tubes of lipstick (all the same red color...she used no other), a small wallet with paper money, a small wallet with identification information, a third wallet with credit cards and coupons, a packet of tissues, a spare pair of eyeglasses, a package of emery boards, some photos of people who nobody seemed to know, a few pictures of family, postage stamps, aspirin, keys to her home, keys to her mothers place, keys to something although we never knew what, a bottle of Cope (whatever that was), a map of the city, some plastic spoons, a few paperclips, there were other things too I am sure but it has been a while since she died so I can't go and look...
Being a man I carry a backpack and toss everything in there and then search frantically when needing to find something.

Well this thread has obviously been taken over by the guys. I'm off the Automotive Korner to find some female companionship.

I bet there was a trestle table in there somewhere, Sturgy old boy. There always is.

I don't carry a purse, but I have big pockets and stuff everything in there.

It is quite hard to find things sometimes, but highly enjoyable.

Well, there's one thing I do know.

I know as much about purses, as I do about cars. Laughing

Who, me? Or Sturgis?

I am an inveterate thrower awayer, unlike my wife. We went through the whole house once, in an effort to thin things out and de-clutter. I kept suggesting things which received a stern "NO!" all the time, and we ended up throwing away one small china dish, slightly cracked.

In my purse? Hm, today I have a little one, but usually
it's a big one carrying wet towels, kleenex, lollipops, game boy,
cd's, play cards and anything else the child desperatly needs
to be content. Cell phone, money, business cards, keys does it for me.

That's because you've cut a hole into the lining of your right pocket, my good man! Laughing
