So a friend of mine was carrying a little bag at lunch, and I made a joking remark about how lovely his alligator purse was.
"It's not a purse," he said. "It's a tactical bag."
"Oh," I said, admiring the marketing geniuses who had come up with a way to sell traditionally feminine things to men. "It must be a handy way to carry your tactical lipstick and tactical perfume."
Which is why I finished the meal alone.
