Like Mama's box of chocolates, when you reach into my purse, you never know what your going to get.
I have two pairs of cheap sunglasses. Cheap, because I always lose, scratch or break them, so I can't see spending more than $15 on a pair of shades. Two, because while we were at Disney World, I thought I lost a pair in the restroom, so I bought another pair, after squinting in the sun all day. After returning to where we were staying, I found my old ones in another purse. Now, I can't answer why I have both pairs in my purse currently... What does this say about me? Ummmm....I'm
I have 2 limp balms, 2 lipglosses, and 2 lipsticks. What does this say about me? Ummm....I like soft shiny, lips? I dunno. Moving on....I have hand lotion, hand sanitizer, Bath & Body Works Body Splash, because I like to be soft and sweet smelling while I disinfect myself, I suppose. Next is a pencil from when my son had to do homework while we were at his sister's basketball practice-that says that we're busy and my son has too much homework (gripe for another day). Checkbook and pen-obvious, I would think.
The wristlet that I use as a wallet is in there-overstuffed with receipts, credit cards, rewards cards that I can never find when I need them, spare change (that hasn't actually fallen out into my purse yet), a tiny hairclip, and a key on a paperclip that apparently doesn't go to anything anymore, because I don't remember what it's for. What does all that mess say about me? Refer back to the disorganized sloth comment.
Widetoothed comb? That says that I'm not bald, I guess. Keys? I have a home, vehicles, and a job. In other words, I have a mortgage, car loans, and door to lock at work. Riveting post today, isn't it? Contact case and Glasses case? I'm blind as a bat. Sweet Tarts packet? I think my son gave them to me at some point in time, and I've yet to eat them. Honesty, I didn't even know they were in there. Guess that means I can add "forgetful" to the unflattering list of things this purse dump is saying about me. Nutra Grain bar? That was meant to be breakfast, as I always eat breakfast on the run, since I'm too lazy to wake up 10 minutes earlier to eat at home.
Let's see...there's also a random dead battery in here. It was actually in another purse when I switched purses, and I left it in there. You never know when you might need one, right? There's hair barrette in case I need to get my daughter's hair out of her eyes, and some strange, broken pink plastic thing in case I figure out that the mystery pink plastic thing it was once attached to needs to be repaired. All these things say that
There's a BandAid wrapper in there because my daughter refuses to trim her nails, so her nails break off in the quick and bleed. Just what you wanted to know, right? All that says about me is that I need to hold her down and cut her nails, or else buy more BandAids. The two blue tickets are from arcade games. These say that I'm a wonderful Mom who
I've also got 3 pay stubs, which say quite loudly that I don't make enough money for someone with a college degree, and I pay too much in taxes. Other than that, they say that I don't clean out my purse often enough, since I get paid twice a month and I have 3 stubs here. You do the math.
Last but not least, is my Vera Bradley phone case, and my phone, which I was taking the picture with. Hmmmm...the "Vera Bradley" says that I'm a thirty-something suburban Mom, and the phone, well, that's fairly obvious.
So, in summary, I am a disorganized sloth, who is cheap, practical, busy, blind, and lazy. Grrrrreeeeaaaaatttt. I think I picked the wrong bandwagon to jump on today.....
