My Magic Purse

My magic purse.

So I’m walking down the street in Cody, WY and I see this purse out of the corner of my eye. Now, heretofore, I’ve been a pretty conservative purse person. I’m more about function. But this one stopped me in my tracks. I mean, one moment I’m walking down the street, on course for lunch, the next I’m standing in front of her.

I did not think it was magic. Not then. I just thought, wow, you’ve got a birthday coming, maybe it’s time to step up your game, girl. So I walked out with that purse.

This is not a small purse. It takes up some room. Makes a statement. Not sure the statement is about me, because I’m a hermit. Don’t wear heels much anymore. But I live in Texas, so the purse works. It’s also big enough to carry all my crap. It’s almost a Tardis. Last week, I’d could swear I felt a sauna in there.

I was cool with that. And then my sunglasses disappeared. I emptied the purse. Did everything  but hold it upside down and shake it. I was pretty sure I’d put them inside, but I looked all the places I could think of. Finally gave up, borrowed some sunglasses from my sister and headed home. Fast forward a week or so. I’m digging through The Purse for my borrowed sunglasses and lo, and behold, my missing sunglasses emerge.


When I go somewhere, The Purse stops women in their tracks. Strangers praise her. She loves the praise. So I’m blogging about her in hopes she won’t eat any other belongings. I like to get along with my purse. Especially if she’s magic. But if Dr. Who comes out?

We’ll have to talk. Cuz the hubs is not a fan.

Do you have any magic accessories? I know Pier One has that commercial about what speaks to us, but The Purse doesn’t talk. She doesn’t need to. She’s that good. If you can, tell me about your magic stuff and I’ll enter you in my monthly drawing for an AnaBanana gift basket that is, in a less scary way, yummy magic. Her stuff won’t eat your sunglasses. Well, there is her zombie stuff, but it won’t be after your sunglasses. Winner is announced the first blog post of the new month. 🙂
