Because of a digestive disorder, I'm not able to eat many prepared foods so I carry my own snacks that won't make me sick so my mother describes it like this, "Vikki eats out of her purse".  There are apples, bananas, nuts, homemade granola or any number of other good stuff.

I had to laugh as I listened about purses. I work at Starbucks here in Seymour, Ct. Last week at our church as I walked in one of the greeters I know well said hi and asked me if I had any coffee just joking around and I pulled out a handful of the Starbucks Via packages and handed them to him. You should of seen his face it was so funny.

My purse says I'm on weight watchers (if my book is in my purse, otherwise it says nothing). I have the bare necessities (cell phone, drivers license, misc cards, brush, lotion, pens, pad of stickies, gum, compact mirror, tweezers & a few misc items). I can't stand a cluttered purse and no make-up goes in my purse. I clean it out almost daily.

I guess my purse says that I'm a neat freak, a Christian, and a song writer because I have certain things in a certain pocket in my purse, and I have a notebook with sermon notes and some lyrics.  The rest of the stuff in my purse is pretty normal: scrunchy, bill fold, keys . . .

I had a housekeeper at the time when this happened. I had run out of hairspray and looking in my linen closet was relieved to find a full bottle of hairspray. As soon as I applied it, I knew something was wrong...my housekeeper had taken an empty bottle of hairspray and filled it with household cleaner! So that day I had au deu cleaning agent scent, thankfully it missed my face.

My purse probably would say I am a neat freak.  Actually it is so small that it only holds my drivers license, check card, cell phone, and a small vial with my meds.... ha ha, it is a small camera case but it looks like a small leather purse.

I bought a vial of Creed perfume (really expensive brand) on ebay and now I'm putting it on and I smell like an old lady. Is this because old ladies wear really expensive perfume or because they wear expired perfume?
