Fine, the damn thing looks like a purse. What can I do? Men have used purses since they were invented. Long before women were trusted with valuables. I tried calling it a “man-purse” to no avail. It just opens up more questions.
The solution i[s] to say, “This is my man-purse, dammit.”
The mild cuss word brings enough tractor-pull karma into the equation that semantically, it balances out to zero, and I have yet to be beat up.
We believe Mr. Bradley’s claims, but have yet to test his methods.
