Fall Cleaning

I just watched an imposing looking Latino girl clean out her whole humungus hand bag on the train.

Wallet, umbrella, phone, make-up, even a T-shirt that said…Bed Sty Stud, I’m assuming belonged to her boyfriend, piled beside her.

She was in her 20s, full-figured with dreds like the Cowardly Lion, if he were a rapper that is. Tattoos up and down her arm, a zillion earrings in her ears. What I also noticed right away was her lack of self-consciousness dressed in a midriff baring a very well fed torso while a silver star gleamed from her navel.

Me in my tights, hoodie and Audrey flats felt underdressed.

With great organization, she put it all back only stopping to open a big jar rubbing its contents on her cuticles and the top of her head never looking up once.

When she got off at Bleeker, her rear end splaying like a blue screen across her jeans, my one thought was…she’s so neat and organized, not to mention clutter free, I’m betting, she’d just love my apartment, especially the closet.

    You couldn’t say that about my handbag…when I clean it out I know I lose 5 pounds!

    I will never understand women’s handbags as long as I live. I like to be a good man in a storm but I don’t expect to be carrying the appropriate accouterments for every eventuality. Like snails or the caravan fraternity that snarl up the roads this time of year, taking the contents of one’s home, complete with kitchen sink, isn’t efficient.

    Susannah, I’m always cleaning my purse and it still weighs a ton. And I stopped carrying a half pound of candy in it over ten years ago! However, I am prepared for any cosmetic or medical emergency, ha, ha!

  4. My purse is basic but I have a friend who has to carry extra glasses and all sorts of meds for her husband who refuses to put anything in his pockets.

  5. I’m impressed! That was mesmerizing to read, let alone witness. She just raised the bar on multitasking and knocked me down a few pegs.
