Happy In Bag

Friday, October 21, 2005


I get panicky without pen, paper, wallet, keys, cell phone, camera, reading material, and other essential paraphernalia at my side. Yet lugging a briefcase or backpack around, as I do now, is overkill. And while I’m already a sartorial disaster, so-called fanny packs are out of the question. What I really need, and intend to acquire directly, is a man purse. My hunt commences this weekend. Any tips, guys? Ladies?

    Oh, how long I've wrestled with this problem; you're a man after my own heart. A somewhat imperfect solution has come for me in the form of a messenger bag (the kind that slings over one shoulder)I bought in SF last summer.
    I was in Paris last year and nearly bought a French man-purse; that would have been too much. The messenger bag is working for now. It has a cell phone holder on the strap, and can fit a couple of smaller books as well as keys, wallet, flask . . .
