It's OK. I've found out where to buy diarrhoea tablets since then. The one up near Kreuzplatz, with all the aeroplane memorabilia?
Ohhh, I thought the undies were for overnighters. I am glad you've found a med that helps.

Yep, near Kreuzplatz. I've never seen them open during opening hour unfortunately, but they have neat stuff that no-one else has. I've drooled on their windows tbh.

If they have lots of cool retro stuff but you've never seen them open, then perhaps they closed down in the sixties and never cleared the shop window.

There's a shoe shop in Nicosia like that.

Wait a sec, for diarrhoea tablets? Why not just go to a pharmacy?

BUT, if you must carry a bag, why not one like that cute little blue-overnighter-Pan-Am-ish bag you used to lug around with extra undies in it ()? That looked retro cool; there is a shop in Zurich that sells airline bags just like it.
Now that guarantees the ....um.....metrosexual look. After all, how many straight male flight attendants have you ever met?

You mean they dont join because of all the female cabin crew?

You'll be telling me next that hairdressers don't enlist because of all the lady caressing that goes on.

Re: Is this bag a bit, well, you know... for a chap to carry?

Getting back on thread, I think its very considerate of those chaps that carry all their posessions around in a manbag/murse/whatyoulike. When the thief nicks the bag, he gets their diary,mobile phone, wallet,car keys,immodium,house keys, identity card complete with home address to pop by and pick up the hifi/telly/dog. Saves the tea leaf so much time, its a one stop shop.

I have a working class friend like you, DB. He reckons if you can't get all you need in a KwikSave bag, you're carrying too much. Frankly, I'd have thought such a purse - that bourgeois icon of middle aged, gender-ambiguous, EuroTrash, beige gilet wearing 'men' as found wandering with slightly startled looking expressions amongst the populi - was beneath you, but maybe you're no longer looking back in anger...

..... and yet they still insist and continue to keep their "lives" in a single bag.
Now what does that tell you ...?

Fixed that for you.

Funnily enough, we haven't heard from him yet in this thread...

(but it's only a matter of time)

Yes, quite manly. The Tshirt and sunglasses and hairstyle colour and cut is optional. Just make sure you got NO boep stomach when you wear the bag thingy.

Ya know ... in the old days we used to carry just a digging stick and a sling bag of animal skin for the food we dug. I guess life just keeps getting more complicated?

The more you got, the more you need.......
