Before anyone says anything, I’ve been carrying a bag when I go out since my stroke. Pockets are difficult for me. It is, of course, a manly bag.

Something that’s not drawn much comment is the lack of purses in TMI. Partly, I’m being lazy, but also it’s philosophy. Guys get by with a wallet and pants pockets; women can too. Mom points out that purses are quite practical and it’s guys that are missing out by NOT being able to use them.

Do see a lot of “messenger bags” in use these days tho.
