my pits

Friday February 17, 2006

I stopped wearing deodorant a few years ago.

I seemed to always forget to put it on and then freak out when I remembered.

So I just stopped.

Yesterday was the first day in a long time that I thought, “Maybe I should start wearing it again.”

My pits smelled.

I was afraid to use my arms to gesture.

Small wiffs of myself floated around me whenever I released my arms.

Growing up I remember my first deodorant that my Mom got me.

It was called MUMS and it was a paste.

I did not want to wear it back then either.

    nah, screw it. human’s have survived for thousands of years without deodorant, so why start now. unless, of course, your personal case of bo is of a serious magnitude. or you’re trying to impress someone.

    what the heck.,,..

    gross. My first time on your site and you pretty much scared me away, lol.

    The only reason we think we smell bbad is because Madison Ave. told us we do.

    I would agree that people can smell a little strong when they haven’t bathed in a while and the oils actually become a little rancid. But we are the way He made us. No need to feel self conscious about who we are, especially if we clean ourselves regularly.

    Annie, oh Annie! That was disgusting and I would get some good organic deodorant and let everyone around you want to actually be around you! Kidding.

    I have a new double-secret blog called Nothin Gold can Stay, it’s at
