The Essentials

There are a few things I try to always have in my big messenger bag when I go out for the day.

I have a hand lens in one pocket because you never know when there will be something interesting to magnify.

To help navigate, I've got a small compass.

There are band-aids for boo-boos.

I go through phases of carrying around a tape measure.

Saturday, I was with a child who fiddled with his nose to the point that he got a bad nose bleed. There was blood all over him, the bathroom floor, the sink, the shelf, the mirror...

I found myself thinking, this is twice in one week I'm being exposed to copious amounts of sangre. I'll take this as a sign that I probably need to add a stash of latex gloves to my work bag.
