I love my big, old lady purse

big old lady purseI remember my mom’s purse. It was huge and it was heavy.

What the heck did she have in there?

When we were little and were told to fetch mom’s purse, it would take me AND my brother to lift and deliver it.

What the heck did she have in there?

When I was a teenager, I was mortified when she would tell me to hold it in the department store while she checked the size or price of something.

Gawd mom! You’re purse is so old fashioned. Hurry up, I look like an old lady. And it’s so-o-oh heavy. What the heck do you have in here?

She never lost it, it was always the biggest one in the pile of purses in the corner at family gatherings.

This thing should have had its own seat belt in the car. In the event of an accident, your worry wasn’t the other car outside, it was the trajectory of the purse bullet INSIDE the car! That thing could take your head off.

I can and do have everything in there and it is heavy as hell. Who needs to carry mace or car keys, my purse could be licensed as a weapon.
