What Do the Contents of my Purse Say About Me

What do the contents of your handbag/purse “say” about you?
Venassa's Webcam Edition

I'm taking part in Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop, which I've  done a few times before, but not in a long time. If you don't know who Mama Kat is, she's hilarious and you should definitely check her out. 

Today I'm going to share the contents of my purse. That's my purse at the very top. It's new. I'm kind of cheating at this, because since it's newer, there is a lot less mess in it than there normally would be. I mean, ask my old purse who's still sitting on my floor with all the leftover mess of stuff still in it. 

Sorry about the webcam pictures - I'm at work and it's all I have to work with. But it also means these pictures are being taken right now. Also, the webcam does not take flattering photos of me. I'm sitting directly across from a mirror right now so I know I do NOT look as bad as the webcam tells me I do. 

Getting on with the show...

1. iPod
This says that I love music, and I love to have it nearby in case I want to ditch my car and walk with music.  The black thing around it is a hair elastic, holding the earphones tightly into the bottom, because there is something wrong with the internal workings of my iPod. No hair elastic means bad sound. 

2. Bottle for Urine
To me this says 'This girl has a doctors appointment where they will need a sample, and they said it's easier to do it at home before coming in than waiting around until you can do it at the Dr's office.' 
To other people his says 'Who is this freak that carries around an empty pee sample bottle in her purse?'

3. Gum
This says I like to have minty breath. I don't chew it often, but I like to have it there for those 'just in case' moments. 

4. Deoderant
This says I like to cover up my stinky-ness at all times. 

5. Rollllll Up the Rim to Win! 
This means I won a free donut, but I'm sometimes forgetful and haven't turned it in yet. 

6. Materna
This says I'm knocked up. Or I take huge, hard-to-swallow prenatal vitamins for fun. 

7. One of Many Coupons
This says I'm cheap. And I love to save money. 

There are a few other things in there, but it just gets more and more boring from here. 
So now I'm curious... what's the strangest thing in your purse? 
I think we all know my answer to that.

I take my iPod everywhere.

And who hasn't carried an empty bottle for pee around in their purse? ;)

Fun. :) Strangest thing? I don't really have one...

Venassa you crack me up!! Love the pee bottle in your purse! Reminds me of the story of the Mom on the metro train who had her purse stolen. Well actually it was her breast pump kit but it looked like a laptop and some burglar stole it. Can you imagine his dismay upon opening it up? Maybe if more of us had pee jars in our purses, we could thwart robbers!
Great post!

the strangest thing I ever carried in my purse was 2 full botlles of pee in a baggie - I was bringing them to the hospital so it makes it ok right?

I'm relatively sure that I've never carried pee around in my purse, but not from lack of trying on the part of my babies.

I think the classification of "weird" depends on whether the person is a mother or not. Being a mother gives us a lot more leeway with what's in there. :)

The weird stuff always happened to my husband. haha

That's one big purse! I guess someone could assume that I'm quite the practical person because I keep pretty much the bare minimum necessary stuff in my purse and that's all.

LOVE this post. The look on your face with the empty pee bottle is priceless!!! And, I have one in my purse too, LOL. Gotta love it.
