What's In My, Bag?

So yesterday my new GFF, Middle Aged Woman, wrote a post about stuff in her purse which got me thinking about what I've got kicking around in my man bag (man purse, murse, European courier bag, whatever) right now. So I dumped it all on the table to see. Not bad really.
  1. Bag - black Nike courier bag
  2. Plastic bag - so I can empty all the pop cans, juice boxes, yogurt and dessert tofu containers out of my desk at work. Though I do like the way my drawer sounds like it's full of empty beer cans. 
  3. Notes for story ideas.
  4. Back up deodorant - so no one gets hurt if I rush out the door and forget.
  5. Three Nature Valley Sweet & Salty bars. 2 almond & 1 peanut butter - the kids love them.
  6. My beat up 5 year old Vuarnet's - more durable with children than Oakley wire frames.
  7. 1 size 5 Huggies diaper - just in case.
  8. Ziploc baggie loaded with Advil and Extra Strength Motrin
  9. Bus tickets - 2 packs of 1 zones and 1 pack of 2 zones
  10. Gum
  11. Mofo - plastic dog
  12. Big Mac gift certificate from the last time wife went postal on McDonald's for forgetting the apple pies.
  13. Extra Strength NeoCitron Cold & Flu
  14. Wallet
  15. Unopened pay stubs
  16. Shogun Warrior - I've had that since about 1978. Think I stole it off a kid named Shawn. Recently rescued from my children.
  17. Tide Stick - thank you Kelly Ripa, you and your giant arms.
  18. Pens - purple & orange
  19. Shell of a race car - no wheels or anything, just the body
  20. Kershaw pocket knife
  21. iPod
  22. Keys
(missing: Sony Cyber-shot, cause it's in my hands)

All in all, not bad. Not like SOMEBODY'S purse which I believe contains the original Magna Carta, some Dead Sea scrolls and enough receipts to make a forensic accountant faint with joy.

What's in your bag?


  1. For just one teensy moment I thought that diaper was a man's brief. I can't even type some of the things I was thinking. Mad props for the purple and orange pens. No bus tickets in Motown, mostly because, well, no buses to speak of.

  2. Ahahahahaha! Well, I like to be prepared, but not that prepared.

  3. Your Supreme LeaderJuly 31, 2008 at 8:07 AM

    I did not go postal. I was polite and firm. And you never know when you'll need that receipt or that miscellaneous piece of paper.

  4. I'm afraid I'm with your supreme leader... I seem to keep a lot of receipts in my bag. Just in case. In case of what, I don't know. Maybe someone is watching me, waiting for me to throw them away so they can then steal my identity.


Come on, sailor. I love you long time.
