Napkin Notes: Our Handbags, Ourselves

In the movie "How To Lose a Guy In Ten Days," Benjamin Barry tells his friends that a woman's purse is her "secret source of power." How right he is. Whether she carries a tiny clutch or a tote bag equal to half her body size, a woman's purse can reflect a lot about where she is in life, what roles she plays, and what's important to her. Or, it could just be a catchall for her junk -- Katrina/Notes on a Napkin.

DFO: Katrina and Mommy Dearest each wrote posts about the contents of their purses here and here. Frankly, I'm intimidated by a woman's purse. Too much stuff in there. The only time I venture near my wife's purse is on the weekends when I balance the checkbook that she's carrying around Sometimes, I can find the checkbook within 5 minutes. Sometimes, I need her help to find it. Strangely, she knows right where it's at.

Question (for women, of course): What's the strangest thing in your purse?
