Welp, it’s a purse. Purse (?). Hmm. It is, according to My Sweet Rib. The Purging Lutheran thought it was just a lip ….. stick holder. It is larger, but not much larger, than a woman’s lip ….. stick yet when you open it there is a mirror on the bottom side of the lid. Sure, a mirror doesn’t make it a purse. I guess if a woman wanted to use her lip ….. stick she would like to see that she applied the cosmetic product containing pigments, oils, waxes, and emollients that apply color, texture, and protection to her lips correctly. But wait! Where did lip ….. stick come from? Well, Wiki P. will tellz ya this ===> Ancient Sumerian men and women were possibly the first to invent and wear lip ….. stick, about 5,000 years ago. Well there you have it – men have been known to wear lip ….. stick. Color me ‘culturally backward’.
What else fits in this ‘purse’? Admittedly, not much else. Mostly items which are long and thin like a tooth ….. pick, a eye brow yanker, an dozen sewing needles, a piece (one) of Dentyne gum, a bobby pin or two, a stubby pencil, a pair of long-ish (but not wide-ish) earrings, a hair elastic, a (very) thin business card, short thin carrots, and especially a miniature set of nunchucks for self-defense. You know? Maybe this is a purse. What do I know? I know I love MSR for all the good things she does for me and how she treats others.
1 Peter 3:7
The same goes for you husbands: Be good husbands to your wives. Honor them, delight in them. As women they lack some of your advantages. But in the new life of God’s grace, you’re equals. Treat your wives, then, as equals so your prayers don’t run aground.
