Grand day out

My companion and I had a very busy and nice day out in Cardiff. The millenium centre is a very lovely building and I itched to go on a tour. Methinks I may have to go back another day. After the conference we went in search of a Torchwood souvenir for the eldest belle but drew a complete blank. We went into one of the public buildings next to the Senedd and had to put our bags through a metal detector while we walked through the arch. My colleague went through just fine but as my bag went through the man doing the scanning got all excited and called his companion over.
'Theres a suspicious object' Scan man
'where?' other official
'There, see that?' scan man
'It's a toy car.' other official
What? Doesn't everyone carry a metal dinky car in their handbag? I have lots of weird crap in my bags including my coffee sticks.
What's the oddest thing you carry?

Hmm, I should ask my best friend she thinks everything in my purse is odd *g* I guess the oddest is the mini binder clip, just in case i have to put things together :)

Drinking straws. You just never know when you're going to need those suckers. I also often have little cars in there, but I have a 5 year old son so I've got an excuse!!!!
