The Great NON-Deodorant Experiment, Day 2
At any rate, I thank you all for your comments and setting me straight.
Day 2 began with my showering and scrubbing my armpits with extra emphasis. I washed and soaked and repeated. My armpits have never been so spoiled, unless of course, you count the time that I paid to have my armpits massaged by a professional armpit masseuse. (It's an extra fee.)
I opened my medicine cabinet this morning and without thinking, grabbed my bar of Speed Stick and twisted out just enough of the goo to coat my underarms. I was just about to apply when I remembered you, my beloved readers and the promise that I had made you.
Many of you have been asking about my wife and her reaction to all of this. Well, if there was ever a time for her to have a nasty cold, it would be this week.
She has a nasty cold this week and can not smell a thing.
Thus, day 2 came and went and no one said a word to me about my smelly armpits. Of course, I spent most of the day sitting on our back porch, reading and watching the kids swim in one of those urine-infested blow-up pools.
The life of a teacher in the summertime can be pretty harsh.
