A coworker noticed the duffel bag I bring to work with me each morning and wanted to know what was in it. I told him it was just notebooks, printed emails, meds and maybe a snack or two -- same thing men put in briefcases. He accused me of having a man purse so I agreed to empty it out and prove otherwise. We were BOTH surprised by what we found.

Here's what you're looking at:

  • room freshener
  • beef stick
  • stale jerky
  • blood sugar counter/meds
  • spiral notebook
  • flip notebook
  • large spiral planner/calendar
  • sunscreen
  • water balloons
  • hand sanitizer
  • 5 Hour Energy shot
  • hair brush
  • small screw driver for eye glasses (or my RC truck)
  • two flash drives
  • a recorder for taking verbal notes
  • "Nail a Nickel" prank
  • usb cord
  • "Forest Gump" soundtrack for cutting sound bites
  • printed emails and a coupon (in the bag)
