Lunchbox or Handbag?

By Cathy Feldman

I spend a lot of time out on the town. I have spent countless afternoons shopping for the latest fashions. I have covered mile upon mile of New York City on foot searching for the perfect shoes. I have partied into the wee hours of morning far too many times for my own good. When I am out and about, I happen to see a lot of people. I hate to admit it, but I have always paid attention to the clothes people wear and the accessories they use. Honestly, I fear it is becoming a bit of a problem.

As of late, it seems that no matter where I go someone is carrying a lunchbox. At first I just thought that it was cool again for people to take their lunches with them when they left the house. But then I started seeing them in magazines, in fashion shows, in music videos. People just couldn't be eating that much! It took me a while to clue in to what was happening. It seems that the lunchbox has replaced the traditional handbag in certain quarters.

What is it about the lunchbox that those people seem to love so much? Is it the inherently utilitarian design? Is there some form of nostalgia at play? The more I thought about it, the more I realized that I had to have one of my own. The only problem was how to decide on the right one for me. How does one go about finding a lunchbox that properly expresses their individuality? What if I made a mistake? What if my lunchbox told the world something other than what I intended? What is a girl to do?

I finally decided on one of the retro lunchboxes. They are supercool! At first, I thought I might want one with cartoon characters on it. Strawberry Shortcake was my first choice, but I don't wear a lot of pink and decided against it. Then I saw one that had Cheech and Chong on it, but I figured I would be stopped by the police every few blocks with that one. Then, I found the one for me! It was a Ramones lunchbox, with a cartoon drawing of the band on the lid. If am not mistaken, that was the artwork from one of their albums. I absolutely love my new purse".I mean, lunchbox. Hey! Ho! Let's Go!!

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
