Tool box is as tool box does!

Conversation on Wednesday with me boss:

"Okay, I'm off to the post office with my spiffy new purse."

"You know, women always do this. Now, if it were a spiffy new tool box you were showing me..."

"Uh, excuse me?" [Pulls out little "zip top bag" of cosmetics] "Tools." [Pulls out mobile phone] "Tool." [Pulls out keys.] "Tools."

He then conceded that I was, in fact, carrying a spiffy, black leather tool box. Good thing, too.
