Why do middle aged women of power always carry handbags?
The Mayor climbed up over the barricades to the camp to powwow with organizers. Everyone tells her ‘Why not use Chinna Lane and not get your dress and shoes dirty?” Madam Mayor is a middle age woman with a stout waistline, stout shoes, silly hat, and a handbag. She acts as if she is about to deliver a campaign speech. She waves to the crowds like Queen Elisabeth while smiling that insanely cheery smile. Then she praises everyone for ‘resisting the chaos of the moment’. Then she meets the organizers and they casually stroll through the camp as if she is making an inspection. Why do middle aged women of power always carry handbags? And wear silly hats? She praises our sea of patriotic blue as she vanishes into the hundreds of blue flags big and small.
