It's no secret--I carry lots of stuff in my purse. Being a wife and mother requires me to bring along anything and everything that everyone else will certainly need. I once had to see a neurologist for some mysterious symptoms. He picked up my purse to move it out of the way and told me he wasn't surprised I was having numbness and tingling in my arms.
As we drove the ten or so hours to Disneyworld recently for a much-needed vacation, my granddaughter asked if I had a stapler. A stapler. Okay, I come prepared, but not that prepared.
Later in the week one of the girls asked if I had any tape (I'm probably better off not knowing why she needed that). And then there was this gem: "Nana, do you have a hole puncher?" Mind you, this was all while we were hundreds of miles from home. At Disneyworld. Not at a business conference. Do I really look like an office supply store?
Next vacation I'm turning the responsibility of packing the "essentials" over to someone else. This office is closed.
