Have you ever wondered what the inside of a woman’s brain looks like?
Would you like a peek into mine?
If you really want to see what is important and how a woman’s brain is organized, just look into her purse–see what is there. See what isn’t there.
The housing of my brain, (the purse) is a bit like the housing for my brain (me.) The purse is worn at the edges, but still a “classic”. (Okay, if that doesn’t describe me, just give it to me anyways. This mommy body needs something to hang onto.) And speaking of hanging on, check out the handles. They are rounded and stick out from the sides and are a bit worn from all the handling. ENOUGH! Quick, let’s move along to the highly intricate brain.
A bottle. I am the mother of a baby. He is my little lamb and I love taking care of him–hence the diapers and change of clothes. Little Man is very important to me.
A Bible in a Ziploc bag. This is to keep the Bible safe if the bottle should happen to leak. The Bible is there for emergencies. Sometimes I need my emergency manual, and sometimes we are just running late and have to have our morning Bible reading in the car.
The Necessaries: wallet, keys, phone, and sunglasses. I appropriated this wallet from my sister. It matched my previous purse, and since my sister wasn’t using it; it became mine for keeps. She had no say in the matter. That is what sisters do for sisters.
The Keys: I am showing this item twice just to prove to my Hunni that I do know where they are, and see that carabiner (rock climbing hook)? That keeps them clipped on so I can actually find them after a trip to the grocery store.
Receipts and Coupons: I never use either for anything, but I somehow feel that I am being thrifty and responsible by keeping both in another Ziploc bag.
The Beauty Department: I can’t remember the last time I actually put make-up on in the bathroom. I ALWAYS put it on while driving. It is just part of my driving routine. Carmex for winter, summer, spring, fall, day, night, and Always. And see that new brush? I just bought it after FINALLY throwing away the one I’ve used since high school.
The Emergency Room: Wet wipes, Tylenol, Inhaler, and antibacterial wet wipes. We can now handle any emergency.
Miscellaneous: A scrap piece of paper with attempts at learning Arabic, a lottery card, and used Kleenex????? I’m not sure exactly what all this means about me.
Baseball Schedule, checkbook, and glasses. There is a definite relationship between sports and the checkbook.
The Toy Department: Don’t worry, these are not the only toys on hand. The van has its own arsenal.
The Brush: We don’t always make it out the door with all the rooster tails slicked down.
The End: All tucked away in my last year’s summer purse/diaper bag/kitchen sink.
I do not know what all this means. I just know that my brain looks something like this.
Hope you smiled,
P.S. If you would like an Emergency Manual for your purse, just answer this question in the comment section below. “If you could only take five things in your purse, what would they be.” By commenting, you will automatically be entered for my Give-Away–a purse sized New Testament. And I will even send it to you in a Ziploc bag. 🙂
