After a long hiatus, readers will be pleased to hear that What’s In my Bag is back in action - and promises weekly updates.
This is in light of an interesting revelation; that What’s In my Bag actually has (at least) three readers!
So, to kick things off with a bang (or should that be bag), we have exhibit A: the hardy satchel, which returned home with me after being unobtrusively nestled away behind the DJ booth (a stroke of genius, I know) at Lightbox in Vauxhall Sunday night.
Readers may notice that all looks to be in order - until you do the internal checklist (purse, tick; keys, tick; random bits of tissue paper you know, just in case, tick; bike light, tick; half a pack of raw almonds, erm, tick) until you reach phone…tick?
The good thing about this phone-less situation is that I now have less distractions from say, friends, or human contact - giving me more time to concentrate on documenting the general scattering of my stuff, causing a rise of Tumblr posts. At least Yahoo will be pleased. It also does give time to reflect on the sleuthing aspect: HOW? Was it some kind of crazy acrobat who can jump over DJ booths and go into bags specifically to fish out rubbish smartphones? Did I accidentally give it to the lady toilet attendant to ‘look after’? Was I trying to exchange it in a ‘will give phone 4 booze’ situation? WHY? The why is a very tricky one actually, it’s a Samsung Galaxy Ace and so any thief will probably throw it in the Thames after trying to use the predictive text. The only person I know who also owns this phone is my mum…
So, the mystery of the missing phone remains unsolved, like the ending of a really tricksy Agatha Christie novel. In the meantime, I’ll be concentrating on new and innovative content, bag/phone sourcing, and trying to work out how I’m going to ride the two Boris bikes in my hallway back to their docking posts. See you next week readers, where What’s In my Bag will either have some mind-numbingly dull content (yep, everything’s there, sooooo….) or there will be more bag-revealing, posession-less posts. At much cost to my bank balance.
