I just received this email from my good friend Emily, who is currently travelling about SE Asia and whom I'll be meeting next month in Laos during my week's holiday.
I am rolling about on the floor, howlng, screaming with laughter. I am more hysterical than the time you carried me home through the Trinity/ Bon accord whatever centre after the schooner.
All this, at the thought of you with your male handbag.
I love it.
Can I just emphasise that it is not a male handbag, it is simply a handy bag made for men. Indeed, you could term it a "manbag". A manbag is, in fact, a very masculine thing, as Emily will see when I present myself before her fashioning the said item.
