Common arguments for carrying a purse / bag:
- It's useful - you can carry all your stuff with you without having to sit on it
- It can be stylish
- It can be a status symbol
- It's not manly. (See informative beer commercial below)
See! Beer is manly! Purses are not! Why, you ask? Because! Purses sometimes have fringes, or rhinestones, or are made of fancy faux leather - inherently feminine stuff! But wait...
Contents of my purse: wallet, cell phone, car keys, apartment keys, gum, chapstick, nail clippers, current novel, teabag, hair tie and hair clip, ibuprofen, work key card, assorted receipts and old grocery lists. Useful stuff right?
Does anyone have any theories to how this happened? The internet is coming up short for me today :-/
