Cleaning Out My Purse

I changed purses for spring, and cleaning out my last purse I ended up with an entire desktop full of crap. Huge variety of bizarre stuff, but the weirdest thing hiding out in my purse was not one, not two, but THREE screwdrivers:

A pocket screwdriver.

A Leatherman.

And a full-sized phillips-head.

I mean ... whiskey tango foxtrot?

I was doing some spring cleaning a few weeks ago and I found a bread knife next to the bed in our bedroom. Why I would have a need for a bread knife in bed is beyond me. I'm too scared to see what is the "purse of doom". :)

I think the Leatherman counts as more than just a screwdriver, though, so that's only two, which isn't as bad. :) Though really the only one that puzzles me is the full-sized Phillips; I'd carry the other two around if I had them.

Hey, the contents of my purse regularly include a 40GB hard drive (and its USB cable) and a pair of rechargable AA's, and probably about three different kinds of skin-moisturizing-type products (Badger Balm and a couple of lotions), so I've got no room to talk about weirdness or redundancy.

I'm more scared of what my purse does NOT, to the best of my knowledge, have: a pen that doesn't involve pink sparkly ink. (I have no idea how that happened.)

Rest assured that men are not immune to this syndrome, either. I am often amazed to find what I have dragged home with me from work in mine!

Hmmm.. I don't even know what a "Leatherman" is..
I usually just end up with a variety of Kroger's, Cefcu and my workplace pens.

You are an electrician now, what do you expect?

Nice to see you cone along and using the phonetic alphabet. We've been using "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" for a few years now.
We also like to use "Whiskey Foxtrot Lima" when the non meal approaches.
