pierrot le fou

Advice from a lady at the Farmer's Market

What a small purse you have! Everything gets lost in mine because it's so big. I used to be able to carry around a purse like that, but for the last, oh, fifteen years of my life, I have had to take care of aging parents. So, you know, sometimes I had to carry around a diaper for my mother. And a diaper for her, it won't fit in a purse like that. So now I carry around a large purse. One day, you might have to do the same, and then you can't carry such a small purse.
