Something Is Amiss

So I get out of the shower today, and reach for my new deodorant [first thing I do after I am dressed, if you have ESS (excessive sweating syndrome) like me you know why] and it was gone. A million thoughts ran through my head. Hot pants had stopped by for a brief visit, maybe she took it. Maybe it was just too much pressure for poor clinical protection, couldn't handle it. Maybe (most likely culprit) Violet took it. She had put it on three times yesterday, and seemed obsessed. So I was running through the house, working up a sweat, looking in every one of Violet's usual hiding places. No luck. I was devastated. I sulk my way up the stairs to finish my beauty routine, and when I open the drawer that houses my deodorant, and all the way in the back, there it was. So it turns out, I think it was hiding from my stank. I feel kind of sorry for it, but it is like changing diapers, just because your job stinks, doesn't mean you don't have to do it. It has been working hard and well. I should get a kick back for all the advertising, huh.

I do that all the time! I am way bad for losing something and then finding it where it should be. Also- love that photo of Atticus!

Um, did you figger out why you have to put it on at night? You are my deodorant pimp. I need answers.

You put it on at NIGHT??? This sounds creepier and creepier the more details that come out...

Amanda-I am pretty sure it wasn't there the first time. You know my house is haunted, right?
Memzy-I can't figger it out. It seems like such a waste. Don't most people shower in the morning? You are washing off like $.04 if you apply at night...I have not been applying it at night, and nothing bad has happened yet.
Landee-really, really, really creepy, but so so so so worth it.

how do you write in italics?...you are smart





(if I could figure out how to use italics the intent of that last statement would be greater emphasized and I would not have to write all this, it's irrelavant however because it was a dumb statement to begin with)

That picture of Atticus is the frinkinest cutest picture ever! And have you tried deodorant with antiperspirant yet? Works wonders and no babies were killed in the process.

Glad things worked out. You are such a fun girl. Even if you do have an odor problem. I still really like you.
