Joyful moment #306: My talking purse

I arrived home after a long day at work and threw my purse on the kitchen counter. I sat down to eat some almonds and decompress a bit. I couldn’t help but notice my purse was sitting there all by itself. It got me thinking.  What would my purse say to me if it could talk?

My purse

Purse: Hello, Amee. How are you doing today? Look, I know you’re a little busy but we need to talk.

Me: (eating some almonds) I’ve been giving standardized tests all day. I’m too tired to chat.

Purse: That’s okay. Just listen. You’ve probably noticed that I’m a little bloated with old receipts, pens, makeup, extra earings, paper, a half-eaten granola bar and a bunch of other things. I’d like to be cleaned out least once a week. All the other purses in the neighborhood are neat and tidy.

Me: (still eating almonds)  If you don’t stop complaining, I will give you to a thrift store.

Purse:  You bought me at the thrift store so it would be like going home for me.

Me: Yeah, you’re right.  Okay, you win. I will tidy you up.

After giggling about a talking purse, I really did clean it. I threw out the old receipts, put the makeup back in the makeup bag and got rid of the half-eaten granola bar. My purse looks much happier now. It’s so neat and tidy.

As most of you know, I have been tracking my joyful moments the last few years. I write them down in my little journal. The really funny ones I put on this blog. I just had joyful moment #306 with my talking purse.

What made you smile today?
