What's in your....

...purse/bag?

I went to a shower yesterday and we played a game where you would score points if you had in your bag the item the game "host" listed. It scared the crap out of me what some women (including myself) carry around. But it was so much fun.

So what's in your bag?

    I just changed purses last night, so nothing out of the ordinary is in there.  But when I go to parties where there will be games I do run around the house before I leave putting in random things I probably wouldn't normally carry around with me.  I guess that's cheating.  LOL.  I still have never won though.

    Lol, The bottle opener because I bartend part time and I take my own to work.

    A fork because on those days that I have to work both my day job and part time job, fi packs me dinner. He usually forgets the fork. So I have plastic ones in the care. Working way too much. I need a serious vakay <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-frown.gif" border="0" alt="Frown" title="Frown" />

    Haha...Funny you ask?  I don't know why I have the calculator in my purse.  When I changed purse the other day I just dumped all the crap from one to another.  Plus, I use the one on my phone more than anything.  Thanks for posting this because now I have a reason to clean out my purse.Smile
