"I need a purse"
I consider myself pretty much a trendsetter, an independent thinker, and I suppose somewhat of a metrosexual. My girlfriend says that if anyone could pull off a "man purse" it would be me. She said it would be better to call it a "Man Bag". It's a purse ... it came from the women's department of Macy's. So ... I must call it what it is.
I've seen a few guys with "Man Purse's" before ... but often they are alternative people, nature lovers, or strange environmentalist whackos. It doesn't look right on me, but I think I picked out one of the most utlitarian and MANLY of the ones I've seen.
Look, I have to be honest ... the thought of having a purse or having anyone THINK I carry a purse is kind of weird to me. I suppose I will never be able to wear it with my pink golf shirt or any pastel color.
I'm still trying to decide if I should make a large velcro belt clip or belt attachment and affix a swath of velcro to a clip or to my belt (or to something I could slide on my belt) or whether I should just wear it diagonally across my shoulder.
My best friend said I should call it a "Utility Belt" because I am after all ... a crimefighter on this blog.
My new "man purse" has an ID/Driver's License holder that I can remove and just leave the rest in my car. It also has a nice place to organize my coupons/discounts and a GREAT place for my screwdrivers, thumb drive, retractable peripheral cables, and iPhone.
At least I don't wear a kilt ... although somehow I think that wearing a kilt with my new "man purse" wouldn't look nearly as silly.
