    Sadly, mine only goes to the Coach store so unless they sell emergency stuff that looks like a purse it ain't gonna happen.

    You know there is something I have yet to understand. Maybe it is not true to all women, though with most of the ones I know it is true.

    A man is expected to have clean underwear and socks at all times. So either he or his wife or significant other goes to the store and buys him more than enough for a weeks supply. That's good.

    A woman does the same thing for her panties, though when it comes to bras, they will have one multi-purpose all-terrain bra. Why is that? Or is it just me? Wouldn't once she found a bra she likes, buy many of them? Never could put my finger on it. Okay, so sometimes I have. :lol:

    And what's with the shoes? I know that women have different outfits for everyday of the week and ones for special occasions, though for every one outfit there has to be at least six pairs of shoes.

    And what's with purses? I know that for every outfit there has to have a purse to go along with it, though what is the deal with the ones where you sling it over your shoulder possibly knocking people in the head with it and what does it contain? Lipstick and massecara. What's with the huge ones? You could fit a family of five in those things and all of their belongings? Either it's tiny and so small in order to fit a penny in there you need a sledgehammer or it's so huge you could park a tank.

    I guess I'll never figure it out. I think if you did a latin translation of 'Woman' you would come up with 'Enigma'. That's just me. :D

    It's kind of like AR's, it's all about the accessories. ;)

    It's just you.;)

    Not true. Outfit matches shoes. No need for 6 pairs for every outfit (that would be excessive, silly!) *see below*

    Cave purses double as Bug-out-bags, and a well-stocked one has everything from a snack for the entire group to a mending kit. Those tiny purses? Liken it to a wallet, 'cept putting it in our back pockets might make out butts look fatter; erego the strap for shoulder hanging. They all double as security devices, as they can be swung (like a flail) or thrown.

    This one? It's my 72-step program.:lol:
