At some point a box of half-used ‘product’ ended up in my cupboard. Moisturizer, soaps, deodorant. Girly stuff. And as happens on occasion, man’s personal grooming habits can be modified by non-verbal interaction with the fair sex. The frequent “two steps back” greeting of a friendly friend, an overheard, “Mooommmm, why does Jim smell?” 🙂
Commercial “men’s” deodorant was abandoned long-ago as sticky, overpowering, stinging, even gunky. It might work for lubricating large blocks of stone as they are wedged into position, but for axilla application, gross!
Digging into this gently fragrant box I discover: Daisy G’s aluminum-free Lime & Patchouli unisex deodorant. BANG! Instant reorientation into polite society. Full dance card at the monthly cotillion. News travels fast within The Arc; Joey B. calls, wants to know my secret.
At the risk of imperiling our nation as reawakened romance syphons his time, I say, “Easy-peasy, Joe-Joe. Daisy G’s of Buckeye Arizona. She even has a $4 shipping special until July 4th. Hit the net, get a few for you and your closest friends, maybe a few soaps and moisturizers as gifts, and Dr. Jill won’t be able to keep her hands off of you!” Sure enough, you saw their smiles at G7 😉
