For the last few weeks I haven’t been a part of Mama Kat’s Writing Workshop. What was I thinking?!? Well, now I’m back at it and taking a stab of one of this weeks prompts:
What do the contents of your handbag/purse “say” about you?
If you took a peek in my purse you might be a little confused. You see, I have the purse of a multi-tasker. Everything is kind of jumbled up in there. It used to be much more organized before you know who. 🙂 I think I need one of those organizer things. There’s usually too many things in there but, they always have a purpose… kinda. You’d find my blackberry, lip balm, a little make up, business cards, crayons, snacks, a notebook and my wallet. Random tissue, lotion and ear buds make the cut as well.
The Berry – My blackberry pretty much controls my life. It’s so sad, but totally true. If it’s not on the berry calendar, I can just about guarantee you it’s not getting done. All the contact information I need is in that little piece of magic. Everything I need to do at work and at home is there. Every appointment, every task list – it’s there. What the heck did I do before my beloved berry.
The Balm – My lip balm is also a life saver. I absolutely can. not. function. with dry lips. So the lip balm is a necessity.
The Make Up– If for any reason I need to be “cute” I have a wee bit of make up on hand. I am not a big make up girl. I prefer my lip balm at all times and that’s about it. Every now and then my life calls for a little more effort than that. So, I keep the makeup bag as my effort to be prepared.
The Cards – My business cards are always on hand. I keep them there just in case. In case I meet someone that I might need to network with later, I’m ready. I have to be prepared, right?
The Colors – Crayons have been stock piling in my purse for a while now. Every time we go to a restaurant I pull them out so the little man can entertain himself for a bit before dinner. It always helps to have extra. You just never know when he’s going to throw them three tables away followed by a meltdown.
The Snack-age – I keep animal crackers, cranberries, trail mix and snack bars within reach. The snacks could be for me, the baby or anyone I encounter who might be hungry. It’s my own little feed the world initiative.
The Notebook – Not the (bring on the waterworks) movie! An actual notebook. I have so many random ideas all day for this here blog that I keep a notebook close to jot them all down. At the end of the day I look at it and decide that maybe what I wrote is stupid and others are pure brilliance. HA!.
The Wallet – Well, yeah, duh. 🙂
Your turn! What does your bag say about you?
