If You Were to Look Inside My Bag

Monday, June 27, 2016

I feel like you can tell so much about someone by the contents of their purse. When I check people out of the doctor's office and collect their copay, I watch women pour things out of their bags that I could never imagine carrying with me on a daily basis. I only get around 2-3 minutes with each person at the end of their visit, so I try to find out as much about them as I can through observation. If I was to show someone the contents of my bag, it would go a little something like this.

If you were to look inside my bag... you'd be surprised that on some days, my "bag" is usually just a wallet, that I've managed to cram a ton of stuff into. This usually turns into me panicking every time I set it down anywhere, because I've probably almost lost it about a hundred times.

If you were to look inside my bag... you would find this matte lipstick. Which for as much as I love it, isn't really much more then a tiny pop of color in a random mash-up of other things. I've worn it all of one time (at graduation) and never again. It was only $6 though so still totally worth it.

If you were to look inside my bag... you would find movie stubs. Ranging from Disney/Pixar - romantic comedies - to regular comedies. I tend to stay away from action films. Although I do like the occasional horror or thriller (at home, in my pjs, where I can yell at the dumb characters and no one can tell me not to).

If you were to look inside my bag... you'd probably find a book. Or two. The most current book of choice is The Infernals by John Connolly. It's the second in a YA series and it actually makes me laugh out loud. June book updates, coming soon.

If you were to look inside my bag... you would absolutely find my phone. Because I need it, always. And probably a phone charger. Although I have a tendency to break every phone charger I buy (I'm cursed) so if I can leave it at home that's probably a smarter choice.

If you were to look inside my bag... you'd find so. many. receipts. It's actually a little ridiculous. Why don't I tell the cashier that I don't want one? I'm not sure. But you will always know what I had at Starbucks that day, or what I bought from Target all by checking out the receipts in my bag.

If you were to look inside my bag... you would find at least one water bottle. Probably more then that. My car is worse then my purse but I absolutely have a problem with hoarding water bottles. Seriously, I can't explain the logic behind it but if you were to get stranded somewhere with me you can bet I've got us covered on the hydration front.

If you were to look inside my bag... you'd probably find enough change to buy yourself a meal, and dessert. Every piece of change gets dropped into the bottom of my bag and I think it gets lost somewhere around Narnia after that because when I actually need it, it's no where to be found.

If you were to look inside my bag... you would find lots of keys. One to my apartment, one to my mom's, one for work, one for the family I dog sit for, and a few more that I'm kind of unsure about the purpose of.

If you were to look inside my bag... you might find sunglasses, but chances are they would be broken. You might also find regular glasses, hopefully in a case and not broken.

If you were to look inside my bag... you might find a small cat toy. Our kitten has a tendency to toss his toys into the air and let them fall where they may. Once he knocked Daniels keys from the counter, into his shoes on the floor. Daniel couldn't leave the house that afternoon because he thought the keys were lost forever. Thanks kitten.

If you were to look inside my bag... you might find polaroids from things like birthday parties, family dinners, and holiday's. Also, tons of our pets because I always want to be reminded of things like that.

If you were to look inside my bag, I'd probably seem like a bit of a mess. 

What would I find in your bag?

  1. Haha love this. You can totally tell a lot about a person based on what they always carry. For me... It's a diaper bag with my wallet and a few other essentials stashed away among the girls stuff.
