I began to think about pockets recently when I left my purse in a restaurant and the restaurant was closed for
three days before I could retrieve it. What a blow! Cancelled my credit cards right off the bat--
then I'm thinking, oh dear, new driver's license--the dread of standing in line for that...............
So, why don't I just use my pockets instead of a purse?
Can't leave a pocket, that's for sure!
Aside (I did retrieve my purse! the server placed it in the safety vault--am I relieved--except for the credit cards I cancelled!--)
Hence, my brain went to thinking about the history of pockets, especially for women.
