Confession Time

Waaaaaay back in February (February 16, to be specific) my wallet was stolen out of my classroom. What a pain. I went about canceling everything and getting all my cards and documentation back. That stuff has all been replaced. The wallet itself, however, well, that's another story.

I have been carrying around my cards, receipts, frequent buyer cards, and general wallet stuff in a ziploc baggie for over two months now. My friends have been mocking me for over a month. I try not to bring it out anymore, I just dig around with it still in my purse and pull out the right cards. If I must bring it out, I always feel the need to explain myself. "My wallet was stolen... " I have even repaired a little hole with scotch tape. I know. Don't even say it. Why didn't you just use another ziploc bag??? Because whenever I was in close proximity of my ziploc bags, I wasn't thinking of it. But mostly because I'm lazy.

See, I'm picky about my wallets. It has to be just right. My last one was great. I was used to it. I had a system. It worked. Finding a new one was just gonna be a pain. Hmm... I seemed to have this issue with my hairdresser, too. She moved away and it took me two years to get my hair cut. Apparently me and change don't like each other too much! Dag nummit. Plus, I'm cheap. I wanted to just go to Bentley to get an el-cheapo wallet that would last me well like my old one did. Forget this $50 for a wallet business. Pshaw! BUT all the Bentley stores are far away from my house - totally out of the way.

Until today. I was actually downtown, and so FINALLY replaced my wallet! Woohoo! It's cute, it was cheap, and it has everything I want.


Now I can lay my trusty ziploc to rest and stop being mocked by pretty much everyone I know. For the ziploc, anyway! ;-)

I need a wallet too. I can't go and get one just yet so since your not using it anymore can I have your ziploc bag?

Maybe you could put your new wallet in the ziploc to make sure it stays all nice and pretty. :o)

He he he,

I'd mock you like crazy if it wasn't for the fact that I had my work bag stolen at the end of January and only replaced it last weekend. I just couldn't find one that I liked the look of, with the right combination of pen holders zippy bits and easily accessible places to store a newspaper and Jim Wallis' book. Come to think of it, I'd have bought one ages ago if I could justify £90 for a nice leather satchel.

I thought I was unique, but apparently I'm your male British doppelganger. This won't help my cause much, but I also feel I should admit that I nearly had a heart attack when my barber sold up and left town last year. Before you ask though, I have not been carrying my work stuff around in a ziploc bag for the last 3 months thankyouverymuch.

I should probably also point out that over here Bentley is a very expensive brand.
