Sally, thank you.

Your sarcastic comment made my whole morning.

It was a satisfying Laugh-out-Loud, followed by an SE grin, with a tendency to break into uncontrollable snickers and whatever you call them male equivalent to giggles.

Now I have tears.

My purse says "slut" or "Welfare" I generally always have some sort of lubricant that tends to be for removing any kind of dirt/paint/marker that one of my three have gotten into. If you dig deeper and deeper and deeper... there is a strong possibility you will find cheese/milk/juicy juice. Next to that is the birth control so that some where in the near future the lubricant will be MINE ALL MINE!

My purse says, I can't afford a new purse. And if I do buy a new purse, that one says I can't afford a nice purse. Damn you, recession!

Shoes are proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy! And what's a pair of shoes without the matching purse? That's definitely a fashion faux-pas. No bag is too big or too small, as long as it matches the shoes. (I believe I was 3 when I learned this rule.) As for what goes into it, well that's a blog in itself.

My friends and family have come to the consensus that I really carry 'bags of holdings' and swear that if I were to ever empty one, we'd find the lost city of Atlantis.

Well it does feel like I carry a ton of bricks with me where-ever I go.

But really, I buy a purse I like, anywhere from straw to leather. Cheap to expensive. fwee!

Myrea, Since my purse has Harley Davidson on it, it's not exactly cheap -- overpriced would be more like it! But, you're singing my song on going for smallish. We've both learned to not tempt fate my buying a spacious bag!

I suspect my purse says "Cheap."

I buy my purses at Target. I go for the smallish bags. My stuff will expand to fit the bag available to carry it, so I don't ever temp fate buy buying a bag that hold more than I really need.

Just look on the pages of other teams you are on.

The largest team on Spark is Dealing with Depression. Guess what most of the ads for that site are?

I belong to a role-playing site here on Spark, and all the advertisements are for role-playing games or paraphernalia.

I'll have to check out my gardening team and my diabetic team.

Excellent Question!


I've never had a Harley ad on any of the pages I've visited, but the last two days when I've clicked here, there it was at the top of the page.

Guess they have a computer scanning program that reacts to key words.

The sound a Yamaha makes when it is downshifting or braking is when it's most apparent.

I think it has something to do with head space and head pressure, but not speaking Japanese can be a handicap.

There is one other motorcycle I have ridden that felt "right". A fellow Motor Cop friend of my dad had a 1940 something Indian.

When you straddled that bike, you felt like you were moving even before you cranked the starter. Sweet.

Oooooh, I love the sound effects! They are making me hot. emoticon Except the Yamahahahaha- I'm still giggling over that one. Around here, we have former busted DUIs on itsy bitsy scooters, young stud marines on crotch rockets, but during the spring, we have about 5000 HD riders hit town. Hwy 70 quivers with excitement with all the rumbling.

I'll check out the purse situation, next year.

Yep, you said it right POPEYETHETURTLE, nothing sounds like a Harley feels. And like my t-shirt says, 'If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand.' The first time hubs rode a Harley (one of my BIL's), he didn't get out of their driveway and he was grinning ear to ear. Bought our first a few days later when we returned home. His comment: "I've ridden bikes all my life but THAT's a motorcycle!"

But saddle bags and tour packs are where I keep my purse so I guess I'm not doing THAT right!

Sally,

The female Harley Riders I know don't carry a purse - they have saddle-bags.

I have honestly never seen a female bike rider of any kind carry a purse. They all have wallets chained to their body.

Just an FYI. The first time I rode a hog was in 1964. My dad was a cop for the LAPD and let me ride his.

18 months later I had one that had cost me $1,300. I had parted out bikes that had been laid down by other motorcycle cops or had been hit by a blind citizen.

You can just hear a bike coming down the street and know who makes it. Here comes a Suzukeeeee! There goes a Yamahahahahahaha. Here comes the King, chahooka, chuka, chuka. The sound coming from way down in the base range.

Like the special whine you hear when a Porsche is going through the gears, nothing sounds like a Harley feels.

BLUNTFORCEMAMA ~ I'm with you on the purse/shoe addiction. Although during my unemployment I went thru my closest and weeded out a LOT that I hadn't worn in over a year and shoes I had forgotten about; same with purses. I still have a lot of shoes but not so many purses. I kept the ones I really really liked so now if I get tired of the purse I'm carrying, I 'shop' what I have 'in stock' and switch out with one of those.

That's a lot of moolah for a purse. I don't really go for name brands or fashion so much as the overall look of the thing. I've recently found a couple on Zappos that I'm adding to my wish list, but all they'll say about me is that I'm what my mother would call "a thrown-away child," which basically alludes to someone who doesn't care about what she looks like.

Maybe there's some deeper psychological stuff here than mere purse fashion!

I went through the 'will you carry this' purse scene for a long time. The purses seemed to hold almost everything--- but my shoulder got pissed off at me.
All my purses were in the $5-15. range- the average woman spends something like $320, so a bunch of you b#ches are spending a TON of money.
Currently, I have a way, way cool Morracan wallet thingie that inserts 1 piece into another- it's just a tad larger than a credit card, and holds my nec stuff. Best thing? When I fell into the lake, nothing inside got ruined. However... I no longer have pictures of everybody. That makes me sad. I do LOVE to just have this 1/4" thick thing to stick in my back pocket.
My daughter now carries a purse.
I had her put something of mine in it 2 days ago.
It really made me smile to have her do it.
.... small confession- I do have 2 sexy purses for going to concerts or what not- those times that I am wearing no pockets. Slim, but still with shoulder straps. Ahhh- I'm learning. Age oughta be good fer somthin!

I put the kibosh on letting my kids and/or husband put their stuff in my purse. The other half was always asking me to carry the camera, the GPS, the iTouch, this, that..., oh, and THAT too. After a while it got so heavy that it was like carrying around a second child. So I said no more! I will not submit to this handbag tyranny! If he wishes to get himself a man purse, so be it, but I will not be a mule.

At least not in that sense.

I have a purse addiction which only takes a backseat to my shoe addiction. I feel like I'm always on a mission to find the perfect cross-body bag. Preferably one without drug paraphernalia or saddle bags.

I only buy/change purses when the mood hit me for a new one. I hate changing out purses, and it has to be a shoulder bag so my hands are free.

Oooo Joy, you so tough cuz you got a Harley purse. Woohoo. Lol

Leave it to Popeye to always have something interesting to say. Iím with Joy. I buy a small purse on purpose because I donít want to get caught up in carrying a bunch of stuff including my husbands sunglasses.

As for the new purse for the new season, this is actually a must. You canít be seen carrying last yearís style. Harrumph.

Popeye, I love your dissertation on the joys of handbag ownership and all the implied perks of other dimensional storage. Of course, I knew nothing about this type of storage, so I also had to lighten the load- for the benefit of my shoulders, neck, back, and general well being. Since my kids are grown, I've stopped being the pack mule for the family. T.S. to those who think I should have room in the "bag".

"Man bag"?

Uhhh. Nope.

I'm old fashioned because I'm old. Since I have no control over what happens after I die, I would have to be dead to be found with a 'man-bag'.

Even if one was placed on my cold, dead body, my corpse would probably roll over.

A briefcase that held work files, pens, paper and my lap-top? Sure, I carry one of those when I have to.

A briefcase is not considered a man-bag by any of my friends or associates. It's a working tool.

I have noticed that when my briefcase has developed 'character' (scratches in the leather that personalize it) and still has another 3-4 years of wear, my wife will bug me about it. If I don't take her hint, and hints generally don't penetrate into a man's brain, I will find a new briefcase as a "gift" for Father's Day, my birthday, Christmas or any other day that is conveniently close.

I was once given a new briefcase on some Canadian holiday, and I'm not even Canadian!

Man Popeye, I didn't know I could get a purse that could store all that stuff in another dimesion - just think on what I've been missing out on! I've been doing things completely backwards all these years - purposely buying a small purse so I'm not able to carry the entire house. And now you tell me I could have had it both ways? Man, do I feel gypped!

An "outsiders" view of purses.

1. Purses are designed to thwart a man's need to retrieve something from it, even when directed to retrieve it it by the female owner.

2. Purses defy the laws of physics.

As an example of 1, above, there have been a number of times in our 39 year long marriage that my wife has told me to get something out of her purse for her. I go to her purse and search the entire purse and don't find what she wants. My DW then tells me specifically what side-pocket in which the item can be found. I return to the purse and take absolutely everything in that pocket out. The item she has asked for cannot be found - it is NOT there. I try to put everything I have taken out of that little side pocket, and I can't get it back in, there is absolutely no way the stuff I took out of that pocket can go in. See "Violation of the Laws of Physics", as 2, below.

We will continue from above. My DW will, in a tone of voice that means I'm getting somewhat close to being in trouble, tell me to just bring the purse to her. I bring the purse and all the extra stuff that won't fit into the pocket to her. She reaches into the pocket and her arm disappears up to the elbow. When she withdraws it from the purse - she has the item in her hand. I tell her that all the extra stuff won't fit into the pocket and she tells me I just need to organize it better and proceeds to put everything back in, giving the purse a little shake now and then (I sort of resent the implied assertion that I can't be organized. Me, who has moved over 40 times in his life and can pack a three bedroom, two bath house onto a half-ton pick-up and a U-Haul trailer - and it's not even the largest U-Haul trailer. I can, and do, pack it such that the beds are on top and we can sleep in our own beds until the morning we leave AND sleep in our own beds the night we arrive at our new home. Sorry, I digress.

For further proof, when my wife changes purses, which for some reason she has to do with the seasons, she takes everything out of her purse that is going to be put away for 9 months and puts it on the kitchen table - which it covers completely. It's obvious that it will not physically fit into her new season's purse. Measuring her 'stuff' by volume PROVES it will not fit into her purse.

She proceeds to put everything on the table into the purse, and adds 2-3 items into the purse that wasn't there before. I have watched her do this for 39 years, And EVERY time she changes purses she adds something not previously in the purse.

Logic and the laws of physics would prove that her purse should now (after 39 years) weigh more than three tons. Yet she picks it up, puts it on her shoulder, takes it off her shoulder and gives it a couple of good shakes and judges it good to go.

When she leaves the room, I surreptitiously go to pick up her purse, and it's lighter than the purse she had everything in before!

My theory is that women's purses are designed in such a manner as to have a storage pocket in another dimension. When it physically 'full', the items automatically flow over into a storage locker in that another dimension. The reason that the new purse is lighter than the one before is that it hasn't been used enough for it to physically stretch in our dimension and more overflow has gone into the other dimensional storage locker. It needs time to stretch and be able to have more room in this dimension for more 'stuff'.

These are my observations and theories. I have looked and looked, from every conceivable angle, and I can find nothing else that could logically account for what I have personally observed.

PS: At the beginning of each new 'season', my wife will examine her purse from last year, same season, and decide that it is no longer useful. After which she goes shopping for a new purse. She is gone for eight hours, more or less. That time is necessary to find the perfect purse that 'fits' her. While she's gone I examine her old purse. The straps are perfectly fine. If they were on my hunting pack they would last for at least a dozen more years. I look into the purse - there is not a single torn compartment liner. In my mind I can find no reason that the purse she put away last year and was perfectly happy with is no longer acceptable. If the purse could be somehow turned into something a guy could use, I could sell it for more than she bought it for.

Alas, it doesn't work that way. She puts it in a garage sale and gets fifty cents for it - even though she put a tag on it that said $1.

When my purse started to tell me what it thinks of me, I just zipped it up, lol!

Gotta admit, that wasn't high on my list of priorities to think about..but now that I have, I'm thinking I need to have a wee bit of a chat with mine, then stifle it forever! It's only redeeming grace is that it's fabric and very light on the shoulder. Does that make me a pantywaist???? Or just have pain free good posture? emoticon

I'm pretty sure mine is telling everyone I'm into gateway drugs. There's a big ol' marijuana snap on it because it's made of hemp. Every time I take the H-Bomb to preschool I get some strange looks. Other parents look at the snap and then look at me, then back at the snap.

Maybe I should tell them I make meth in the bathtub.

I'd switch the darn thing out, but it has this handy pocket on the strap for my phone. I can't find that in other purses.
