MrZ has this thing he does that I’ve heard is a thing other men do to their female counterparts as well. (Dirty!) He makes me carry his wallet and keys in my purse if we’re going somewhere that may require walking. First? His keys are bulky and he hates them pulling down his pants and his wallet doesn’t fit right into the pockets of all of his pants. So, they all end up in my tiny purse that is already full of my own crap, dammit!
But – BUT – I noticed something the other day. And once I noticed it with one couple, I’ve noticed it with several others and I’m realizing, maybe this is a trend that I can one day hope to be a part of.
I’ve started noticing that with an older couple, sometimes the men are carrying the (quite large) handbags of their female counterparts. I’ve noticed it mostly at the mall with the senior citizen mall-walkers, but I also saw it out at Target last night and the woman could have put her purse in the buggy, but her husband was still carrying her purse under his arm.
WHEN DOES THIS START HAPPENING?
Or, I guess, how many years of marriage do we have to have under our belts before I can ask him to carry my purse? I mean – this is something I’m really looking forward to. Especially if I could start buying some really obnoxious, bright, and patterned purse. MrZ looks really cute in hot pink polka-dots.
