Dude, I need an intervention! I looked at all the stuff I brought to a conference today, which is the same stuff I pack every day. Every time I leave the apartment, itâ€™s as if Iâ€™m leaving for a three-day trek into the mountains. I books and out-of-date newspapers to read, snacks for me and kids, change of clothing, a menagerie of Tupperware containers for lunch â€“ and I MUST BE STOPPED. I AM AN ADULT WHO SHOULD BE CARRYING A LADY BAG.
