I usually put on antiperspirant fairly soon after my shower. I shower every day. Or at least on every day that I plan on leaving my home. If I don’t plan on leaving my home or take a shower, I will put on deodorant…
That bothers me.
Pretty sure this particular deodorant was a shitty Christmas stocking gift from my youth. It somehow lived through many location moves and numerous ex girlfriends.
When I put it on, I think of my father. My father would smell of Rothman’s Cigarettes, stale beer and this deodorant. After a day of yardwork, this deodorant kicks in. And the old man smell shows up. Sometimes bringing with it, my old man’s attitude. A day of work makes me get angry at the littlest things. The Speed Stick is like a pheromone that turns on my “Pissed off gene” and angry dad shows up. I hate it. Yesterday was hard to contain those emotions, but I did.
Perhaps it’s time to turf the pit stick.
