Last night, we were watching NCIS Los Angeles. I like the original NCIS because of all the character dynamics. I love the Los Angeles version, because who wouldn’t love to watch a bunch of hunky men with guns take down the bad guys.
Anyway, last night, in the opening scene, a bad guy snatched the purse of a woman walking down a street. Of course, she stood there and yelled stop, or help, or some such girly thing–and some hunky guy with a gun and a badge, went after the purse snatcher.
I would like to think that if my purse were snatched, I would draw on my inner—April, Rebel Warrior, chase that thief, and take him down myself.
In reality, I would probably laugh, and say have fun with that. It seriously goes with your outfit.
I really don’t have anything of much value in my purse. the only cards I carry are a thick stack of those store cards (you know, the discount, or points cards). I definitely will not have money, except for the pennies at the bottom, and I don’t carry credit cards. I do carry a wallet, but it is completely void of any contents.
My debit card may be an issue, as well as my driver’s license. That may cause me to stay up at night wondering if the snatcher will come to my house since they have my address, and maybe my keys. Well–there might be my phone as well–if I remember to take it with me.
The most valuable thing in my purse, would be my pint-sized Leatherman Multi-tool. I feel like such a Girl Scout when a friend is having some sort of challenge with something, and I can whip out my handy dandy tool that can do anything.
♫Here she comes to save the day♫
(okay, some of you may not know what this little ditty refers to–it is from a cartoon, Mighty Mouse that I believed stopped in the late 60’s)
Why do I even carry a purse?
Meh, you never know—I might suddenly realize I need those band aids, and mini hand wipes that have been stashed in there since the 90’s. I would definitely need the hoard of receipts. 😉
If my purse were to be stolen, the beautiful thing would be that I would have an excuse to go purse shopping–online of course.
**Update**The vacuum cleaner was fixed. I only had one screw left over, but it seems to work fine without it. Works just like new, and makes much less noise.
