IdaBlue Poll: What Do You Carry in Your Pockets?

Full post here

At lunch today I tried to dig some change out of my pants pocket, and had to bend over at the waist to reach it; the pockets are that deep. That got me thinking about pockets, and I’m proposing a survey. Some pants makers have tried to include a “pocket” or slot or something for a cell phone, and occasionally a place for an MP3 player. Neither of these would help me much. Both are kind of heavy and bulky for pants pockets, even if they don’t spontaneously ignite and toast your nether regions. … I carry some bills in a money clip and a flat INOVA LED flashlight in my right front pocket. Any change I accumulate during the day goes in there, but I try to avoid carrying change as I don’t like to jingle when I walk. In my left front pocket, I carry a chapstick (I know, not manly), a half gig memory stick, and a Swiss Army pen knife. What do you carry? I’m guessing this is pretty much a man thing; women seem to prefer purses — blogger IdaBlue.

Question: What do you carry in your pants pockets on a regular basis?
