Today I’m answering one of the greatest mysteries of the universe – what do women keep in their handbags?
The answer, of course, is sand bags – what else could possibly make them so heavy and bulky? OK, I know that’s not really very funny.
But wait, before you call me a sexist pig, I have a revelation I would like to share with you – I am now the proud owner of a man bag.
Some of my male friends (I hesitate to call them “men”) feel intimidated by my man bag. They are obviously not fully secure about their sexuality. As for me, I find it very handy. Here’s what I keep in it:
- My phone
- My wallet
- My glasses case
- Some bits of fluff
- An umbrella
- A Walther PPK semi-automatic pistol
Actually, that’s not true. I don’t really have space for an umbrella in it.
No doubt my man bag is woefully ill-equipped compared with my wife’s handbag, and weighs a fraction of hers, but I feel that I am quietly asserting my equal right to carry unnecessary bulky objects whenever I travel, and that is surely a great step forward for men and women everywhere.
