    See, now, this is one of the very best benefits to being a non-driver. I always get to be the drunk one . I seriously don't recommend drunk bike-riding, though.

My purse is usually relegated to the car, as often as possible. The last thing I want to be doing is keeping up with extra crap.

    There is a 6th grader at the community center who carries a small handbag everyday and everywhere, along with a violin case, and a backpack. I've started calling her the crazy church lady. I'm all about simplicity; life is crazy enough.
    Life is crazy enough which is all the more reason to carry a survival kit!

    Well the next time you need to measure how far away you are from something, or mend a hole in your pants or attack someone who is following you, you'll thank your lucky stars for your Bag Lady friends.

    You can get a DUI for drunk bike riding here. Same stiff penalties as if you were driving a car.

    Not to be a downer, but I had a boyfriend who got a serious brain injury driving drunk on a bike.
    Count your blessings!

    There was someone in WI (I'll see the article tomorrow) who was drunk on a bike and also got hit by a drunk car driver and killed. And I think this thread has veered off topic from current fads into a coffee klatchy thing - Thats why i think coffee klatsch should be the catch all.
