I was reading a list called the “Les’s fatuous but fail-safe guide to knocking a decade off your age” in a magazine the other day. The third point could not be more true:
“Lose the handbag effluent. As you get older you appear to need more stuff: tissues, vials of little homeopathic pills, nail scissors, a full make-up kit, cheque book and bulging purses. A woman who carries a small bag has no need of life support gear. Younger women need lip gloss, a credit card and a cellphone the size of a tampon.”
I had a good laugh when I read this. When I was younger all I took with me was the very basic necessities. Now that I am getting older I progressed from only carrying and needing the basics, to having a little bag that eventually burst at the seams and now I have a big bag that too is bursting at the seams. It is time for me to downsize to the bird pouch I think.
