...of the 31-Day Blog Challenge - Something you don't leave the house without.
My poise (I like to say "purse" like I'm from New Jersey [Joisey]. "Poise."):
Yeah, I used to be anti-purse, like when I was in high school. I thought, "What on earth would I carry? I just have my wallet." But times change, I guess? I don't even remember when I made the change. Maybe sometime in college? And now my purse is my world. It holds my cell phone (when I remember to take it with me), my keys, my wallet, my checkbook, my ear buds for when I work out, sunglasses, sunglass wipes, calculator, lip gloss, eye drops, pens and pencils, and lots and lots and lots of junk and garbage. I really need to clean it out, actually.
I feel really weird if I'm out and about and don't have my purse with me. Ben did a rendering of a bridge that he designed for something or other. He put people walking on the bridge and on the shore of either side of this river. I couldn't figure out what seemed so weird about these people walking. And then I realized it - none of the women were carrying purses. That's why it seemed so off. Women carry purses. Unless they're jogging or something.
