I wonder if I’m getting more ‘with it’ as I get older? I doubt it! Especially if I go around using terms like ‘with it’. But, two years ago, if someone had suggested I use a man bag I would probably have laughed at the idea, while at the same time instantly dismissing it.
Why on earth would I need a man’s equivalent of a handbag? I had perfectly good jacket pockets in which to put my phone and iPod Touch, my wallet could go in my back pocket, my keys in my trouser pocket …… and anything else I could carry. Simple! How wrong I’ve been for all those years.
I’ve been using my man bag for the last 6 months and am now wondering how I coped without it. Everything that I might need is now conveniently stored and easily carried around – my noteboook, iPod Touch, phone, MiFi, camera, keys, wallet …….. to name just a few of the items. In fact this morning while I was out with Ann she couldn’t find a tissue in her handbag …. I quickly came to the rescue. She had a wry smile on her lips as I rummaged around in my bag – I can’t think why?
