Fleet enemas (plural), chap stick, and Drakkar Noir.
And here I thought "guyliner" was the dumbest made-up word so far...
What a bunch of FAGS!
I have an Targus messenger case for my iPad. I only use it when flying. It's convenient for holding my passport, tickets, headphones, gum, batteries, etc. A co-worker joked it looked like a man's purse. It looks better than a plastic grocery bag I use to carry my lunch to work.
Who carries physical tickets these days?
My lunch. Pens. Gum. A dead squirrel...
I have a "murse" for my iPad. I also use it to carry schoolbooks, pens, my phone, some business cards and some other random stuff.
John Wayne with murse, hot pants, and espadrilles. What a flaming queen.
KLEENEX and a quarter to call a taxi in case the evening doesn't turn out the way it should.
My Virginia Slims and a change of caftan in case he asks me to stay the night.
I have a black leather Tumi bag that I carry everywhere and is basically my purse. I carry a billfold, cards, keys, phone, hand sanitizer, sunscreen, pen, ibuprofen, band aids, and my iPad mini. It has become indespensible.
You forgot your statue of MARY! r14.
I don't get how men don't carry a bag. I have my wallet, checkbook, passport, pens, cellphone, iPod, notebook, hair/skin lotion, sometimes an iPad, etc in it (a leather WWII style map case). Lots of other stuff that I use daily, or might potentially use. How do other people carry all their shit, I don't know.
R17, I'm a woman and I don't carry a purse.
Lipgloss, a small compact mirror, my phone, keys, and a wallet with an ID, cash and a credit card all fit into 2 pockets easily. It's very liberating.
I'm Jewish, anti-Semite @ R15
Perhaps a tiny statue of Mimi Feigelson, R18?
you forgot your bagel, lox and yarmulke, r14
I carry all my shit in my bowels.
My rosary, half eaten roll of spearmint lifesavers and dusty kleenex that's been in there at least a year.
I have a small North Face messenger bag for everyday and a larger one for grocery shopping or carry-on luggage. Like Mimi above, I find them indispensable.
R17, I can't even imagine what you must look like with all of that crammed in just two pockets. Unless we're talking cargo pockets...which means it's worse.
I like backpacks for work files and my flask.
R25, they're all very small, slim items, and I mostly put it in my back pockets, except my phone. If it doesn't fit in my pockets or if what I'm wearing doesn't have pockets (a lot of women's clothing doesn't) then I just leave most of it in the car, carry it in my hand, or carry a small clutch. Purses are the devil.

And so was Mary, r14.
My gran gave me a lovely pocketbook, which I use all the time
A mampon for my man period.
It's funny you should ask this now, OP. Way back in the '60s my then boyfriend and I visited Florence, Italy. It was a melencholy vacationtion. During that trip we both realized that for us "love wasn't enough".
While we were there he insisted that I buy a burso (manpurse)... they were poplar at the time with European men. I had no interest whatsoever in having one, but bought it to shut him up, basically.
We broke up soon after returning home. It was the saddest breakup of my life. We loved each other, but couldn't quite create a life together. The buso has lived in closets in every apartment and house I've resided in since. It's been a momento of youthful passiom I couldn't ever bring myself to part with. When Richard died of AIDS many years later, I knew I' d keep him alive in my heart forever thanks to having kep't that burso around.
Recently I bought a tab-2 android. I knew it would fit in the buro perfectly, as if the outer pocket eas designed in the '60s for a piece of 2013 technology.
I loved you, Richard, then and still do now. I was glad we were both privililedged to go on to happy long-term relationships that suited us better; but I never stopped loving you, and never will. That damned burso won't let me, my sweet lost first love.
Please pardon the typos in my above post. I'm still getting used to the vagaries of posting from an android.
I have a "work bag". It holds bus tokens, cough drops, lip balm, tissues, a fingernail clipper, headphones and absolutely nothing directly related to my job. I only carry it to work, and will throw my phone, keys and lunch in there while I commute on public transit.
No but I have a muse.
What a lovely, sweet story R31.
Everything but the bloodhounds snappin' at her rear end.
I wish I had the chutzpah to carry a murse. I've always thought of handbags as subtle indicators of the natural superiority of women's intellect. Co-opting this useful an accessory as "for women only" was genius.
Just a clutch in the evenings for cocktails for breathmints, a flask of stoli and a pack of Pall Mall 100s
Maxi mads, in case I get my meriod.
No. But I'd marry a nurse.

Do you use these together? Chapstick to lube the hole, then add some Drakkar to the enema and squirt away?
