    I mostly just carry a small handbag (I assume handbag = purse, because here, purse = wallet but for women).

    Currently contains:

    - wallet (with money and lots of cards)
    - mobile phone
    - 3 x glasses cloth
    - several sanitary pads
    - travel pack of Kleenex
    - cigarette lighter
    - moisturiser with 15+ sunscreen (should remove now, as I'm unlikely to get sunburnt for another 6 months or so)
    - chapstick
    - keys
    - security pass for work
    - parking permit for work
    - nicotine lozenges
    - anti-inflammatory drugs
    - rubber band (had no idea that was in there till just now)
    - a small rock
    - two discount vouchers
    - a couple of receipts
    - shopping list from this morning
    - black pen
    ...so much smoke pouring out of each chromosome.

    I actually don't use purses. They piss me off.
    If it can't be held in my back pocket then it isn't coming with me.

    Thumbs down I can't do without my purse.

    The purse is fascinating as it represents part of a woman's person.

    And so naturally the purse is invested with immense emotion.

    The purse serves a double purpose. It not only represents the interiority of a woman but it also represents her social status.

    I can do without my mother; I can do without my boyfriend, she says; but I can't do without my purse.

    The only reason I started to use purses was that I had to carry certain medications and inhalers with me. So, my purse just carries my wallet, my keys and my meds. Before that, I just had my wallet in my back pocket and my keys clipped to my pants.

    What a bunch of crap. A purse is nothing more than a sack of fabric made to hold your stuff.

    Stop reading so much Cosmo.

    Thumbs down The Denial

    It's true.

    Just as sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, a purse is just a purse.

    On the other hand, anything can represent anything else, anything can be mapped onto anything. And so a purse can be mapped onto your person or your social status.

    What is interesting is the impoverishment of the denial.

    Is it a denial of the symbolic nature of a purse, or is it a denial of an intimate part of oneself, or even a denial of one's social status?
