I have a purse, a special black purse with KGB engraved on the side. (It's supposedly a designer purse, but I found it at a thrift store.. I actually bought it only because of the KGB engraving, as the KGB are Russian and Russia is the epitome of awesomeness).
This morning I felt like checking the hidden pockets in the thing, and I found quite a bit of paper and business cards, among other things.
It was funny to me, as I was trying to imagine what this person was like, and why they sold their purse.
There was an Airport receipt, from Kitchener to Chicago, a fortune cookie saying, a comedy club business card, a membership card for a big craft/material supply store, and some American change. There were addresses and signatures as well.
I thought about a story I could write from this experience. A character finding a purse and unraveling a mystery because of the contents in that purse. But I suppose that's already been done.
Regardless, it was definitely the highlight of my week.
