We’re playing trick the old work computer. It seems I can post photos if I use html, so you’ll have to settle for this sad, phone photo of my new handbag. My wonderful, generous sister gave it to me for my birthday, and my League friends have dubbed it the Mary Poppins bag, because it’s deceptively roomy.
I believe the phrase was coined last week. I had to park on the street, and didn’t care to walk past the posse of neighborhood kiddos playing between me and my friend’s front door, whilst swinging a chilled bottle of wine, so … I dropped it in my bag, which already had a box of Turtles and my iPad. Maybe I did appear to be channeling Ms. Poppins as I whipped out the wine, a box of chocolates and my “e-book.” The name has caught on, and I used it myself last night when I asked someone to grab my bag too when she went to get her own from the bag-staging bench our lovely hostess has just for her encumbered guests.
What you can’t see is the super-awesome strip of patent leather that is the exterior bottom of the bag. It’s truly just about perfect. I was a little surprised that Gretchen wasn’t drawn to the PANK lining, but Sis has a special fondness for sticking her head in this bag, for some reason. Why yes, it does have a zipper and if I’d pull it shut… but I don’t, because the phone lives in its pocket near the top of the bag, and that’s just one more unnecessary step at home. When I’m out and about I do close the bag.
What movie character are you channeling these days?
