Think about it: A man takes a woman out on a date and afterwards and muses for a minute
The Big Three Questions:
- Was she cute?
- Was she fun?
- And, did she flirt back with him?

A Swiss Army Knife, duct tape, a hammer, a tape measure, a barbecue, the remote control, a Giant’s winning streak, a Lazy-boy recliner and a few St. Pauli Girl beers and they are happy. Men leave the house with keys, a money clip and their cell phone.
Conversely, women leave the house with a small suit case -called a handbag -with enough varied supplies to support a small nation. We have pens, paper, an assortment of cosmetics in two, tiny, smart-looking cases, a smart Phone, various To-do and shopping lists, a calendar, Bed, Bath and Beyond coupons, mints and gum, a bottle of water, hair clips that can double as a weapon, the paperback for book club, an energy bar, a small vial of Advil, a magic stone, an extra pair of silver chandelier earrings- just in case; hand cleaner, tissues, a small bag with 6 almonds (Dr Oz’s idea) a sewing kit, band-aids, a metal nail file – can double as a weapon; and a bottle-sample size – of perfume. – just in case.
