“So I realized the other day I may be becoming a little too fond of my bookbag… it’s one of those off-the-hip bag with the top that flaps over, I’ve had it since high school. And, well… I’ve started to feel lately like it’s becoming something like a, uh… purse.

“See, I had to go to the hospital on Sunday, so I grabbed the book I’ve been reading lately. And then I thought that I might like some gum at some point, and then thought it best to have a pen with me, just in case. And then I realized should bring the pills I’ve been taking for my throat infection, etc.

“It went on like that, and I wound up tossing everything into my bag and throwing it over my shoulder. And it occurred to me then that should I ever toss any change in there, it would be official. And I could never look at myself in the mirror again.”

    It’s not a purse, Bobby.
    You’re a man. Men don’t carry purses.
    It’s a utility belt. Like the one that Batman uses.
    Think of it like that and you will never have a problem.
    Even Batman, in his early years, before Commissioner Gordon gave him the Bat Signal and his own parking spot, needed Bat-Change for the parking meter in front of Gotham Police Headquarters.
