What's in your bag?

What seems to be an innocuous question, seemingly doesn't evoke a straight forward reply, at least not when subjected to the wild imagination of John Galliano!! John plays doubting Thomas and adds a naughty twist as to the contents of a women's bag to an extent that one almost believes the bag to be a holder of sinister secrets which her better half would certainly regret to chance upon!! He muses "It is part of their charm, their secret weapon. Who knows what’s in there — keys, wallet, phone. That is all to be expected. Who’s to say what door that spare key opens; why she has her passport tucked in when she’s only going up the road and whose phone number she has scrawled on the back of an envelope . . . I love the unknown — and the what might be.”

If John is to be believed, then its not just good manners that should hinder a man from opening a woman's, especially his woman's bag! Well as for the contents of my bag, all I can say is that if John did peep in he would be very disappointed, for spare keys he would certainly find that to his utter dismay opens only my closet, the passport tucked in, serving as a mere identity proof and as for the number scribbled on a decrepit paper and peeping out of the bag's inner pocket, well that just belongs to an old man who sells fruits in Bastille, whom I promised to call to ascertain whether the kiwis that I had so badly wanted for so long have finally arrived.

So whatever is in there, we have a convincing explanation for it all, and if men do put us through fire by their uncouth act of demanding an explanation for each of the precious possessions in our bag, we would emerge a saint, unscathed!! And John, just a word of advice, please look for your Hitchcokian mystery elsewhere!!

John is so witty! Though I prefer staring at him when he's shirtless.

I think John has mellowed down, probably with age, these days he hardly walks the ramp exposing his sculpted torso!!Or maybe he's got used to it!!

Let's reminisce the good old days of six pack and bare torso!

Now that's one hot man! Thank you!
Oh, and that comment about cute young Galliano was mine also! :D I do seem to be quite obsessed, I know!

Ya, he is really a breath of fresh air when compared to the other designers who take a quick jaunt on the runway, as far the obsession goes, I too share it, can talk about him whole day long ;-) and the torso I believe comes with a lot of hard work, it is rumoured that he does a 5 km jog followed by 150 push ups, kick boxing etc for 1.5 hrs every single day to maintain that abs of his
