Hey there. Is it me or do women in general own too many bags? When I first met my wife, I was astounded by the collection of hand bags that she owned. Small bags, big bags, colorful bags, monotone bags, expensive bags and not so expensive bags. She seemed to have one in every color and one for each occasion. The top half of her closet was dedicated to bags alone.
Now, I never really understood why she needed so many. Me, being a man, I simply may not have the brain power to fully grasp the concept. I always viewed bags a the female equivalent of a wallet. In my mind, since women tend to wear fitted clothing, pockets are kinda meaningless in pants and a bag is necessary to carry stuff. I don't change my wallet unless it's falling apart... The bag, however, will alternate with several other bags and they eventually stay in pretty good condition.
"Why are you telling me this, Metallman? I don't care about whether or not your wife has 2 bags or a million bags."
Well, my friends, you're about to care. A few days ago, my wife got the urge to clean out the closet. Must be the Spring Cleaning bug, I don't know, but she pulled out several handbags that she wants to get rid of. The bags are of the BCBG variety and are in great shape. Now, let me tell you, my wife takes really good care of her stuff. Some of the bags still have the tag in them and others, she never really used. After a brief discussion with the wife, I decided that instead of donating the bags the local Salvation Army, I've decided that I'm going to give them away to my readers, one at a time.
I'm still debating on how I'm going to do it. Will it be a contest type thing where an entry is earned for every comment, post, or tweet? Or should it be a comment only sweepstakes where the random.org gods determine the winner? I'm still thinking about how to go about it and I welcome suggestions. Keep on the look out the first one up for grabs some time next week. Until then, later!
