I've been bathing in dog shampoo for a while, now. As dog shampoos go, it's rather nice. Hell, it's nicer than most human shampoos. It smells like green tea and bergamot and feels like posh. But I ran out a few days ago. I texted my SO to ask if she could bring my Old Spice Swagger body wash (which had been left at her apartment) to our room at the Rodeway Inn. Despite the fact that she usually refers to this body wash as "stinky stuff", her response was "Sure!"
When she showed up that evening, she gave me my Old Spice. She then proceeded to let me know that she'd also brought a couple of alternatives, just in case. She gave me a bottle of body wash which smells undeniably like ginger -- WTF? -- and another which purportedly smells like citrus.
I love my Swagger! I think it smells freaking awesome!
But, as I sit here, writing this blog post, I smell undeniably like ginger and approximately like citrus.
There's a lesson to be learned in this stupid, little story. I'd be glad to spell it out for you. But for now, I'm too busy wondering what's going to happen when I run out of Degree deodorant.
