It was a lazy day. I didn't have anywhere to go, so I didn't get out of my pajamas and shower until Jackson's nap time. He is still feeling pretty bad and he seemed eager for me to lay him down. After I was all clean and smelling good, I reached into my toiletry bag for my Dove deodorant. It wasn't there. I looked all around and finally decided that the little Mister must have gotten to it and put it somewhere. Only God knew where it was.
That was my only deodorant stick, so I'd just have to try not to sweat until Curt came home and told me where his manly spray deodorant was. I would get some new girlie stuff when I went to the store later. That meant no drying my hair, no cleaning, and no wearing synthetic fabrics for a few hours.
As soon as Curt came home I inquired as to the whereabouts of his spray stuff. In the little cabinet in the back room. So I bounded into the back room like a graceful deer who can bound without inducing sweat, and I found the can of spray deodorant. I didn't look closely at the label, but it mentioned something about being waterproof. Great. It will take me three showers to get this man-smell off. I proceeded to, you know, deodorize. As soon as the spray left the can I knew there had been a huge mistake. It smelled like paint thinner! It was then that I bothered to read the label closely and see that I was spraying "Waterproofer" on my underarms. Lovely! Just lovely! I was of course squealing in horror while Curtis did his little wheezing laugh that he reserves for only the best of occasions. I'm so glad I could thrill him into the wheeze tonight.
Then I saw the Brut spray deodorant can sitting right on top of the dresser. I kid you not, the only difference between these two cans was the color and the label. They looked almost exactly alike. I had to scrub the waterproofer off my skin for several minutes before I could Brut it up.
About ten minutes later I found my Dove deodorant under a pile of clothes that I had been putting off hanging up. I'll just have to wait to be a Dove until Wednesday, because my underarms couldn't take anymore scrubbing. For now I will just have to remain a Brut.
