I realised the other night that some women have developed the particular capacity of dancing with their handbags tugged under the arm in a way that the handbag almost seems to be a part of them.
What am I trying to say by this? Considering that I have clearly not developed this capacity, there are two options: I’m not evolving. Or, I’m not evolving in the same direction. I bought my first handbag at the age of 27 and this only because I couldn’t possibly show up with my usual backpack at a work related gala dinner. Times I used this handbag since: 2; 1 of which was another work related dinner.
Maybe we are witnessing a split in human evolution: One part of the species evolves with a genetically integrated handbag, the other continues to have backpacks where everything can be dumped in and which are far less likely to cause strong shoulder pain.
