I'll miss my jacket

I got one of those really well designed GAP jackets during one of the after-Christmas-sales and it suits me well.

I'm going to miss it when the weather changes, though, because I keep tons of stuff in it. I've got my medicated chapstick, pencils and pens (a trusty gel pen sits in the inner pen slot of behind the right breast of the jacket), various reciepts, my cell phone in its very own cell phone pocket, the real estate for other people's stuff, emergency fork, gum, gum wrappers, chewed gum wrapped in gum wrappers, the list goes on forever. I can't transfer all this stuff to my trouser pockets because it will make my trousers bulge and that is definitely not attractive.

My dad once picked up a man-purse one spring, though he won't call it that. It works well for him. I guess. He claims that it is his camera case. In a way it's okay because dad spent enough time in Europe to get away with it. I think that there are some lines I can't quite cross.

I think that I'll eventually try to live a more simple life. I can live with a single pen in my pocket and a pencil in my ear. A few of the old navy trousers have cell phone pouches within the pockets. I've heard that some chapsticks come on lanieards that you wear around your neck...

Well, the chapstick wouldn't make your pockets bulge much . . .

the cell phone could go into one of those really cool belt clips . . .

then you could get a really really good wallet . . .

Just be thankful you're a guy and that they make your clothes with multiple pockets. Chicks have to use purses.
