With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads, that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated, and happy.
Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror, I will think, 'Good grief, look how smart I am!'
The entire 4th grade boys at my son's school were being taught last week about the importance of hygiene. They even went so far as to send a packet of information home, along with their very own tube of "Old Spice" deodorant. He was so excited, you would think it was Christmas! He immediately pulled out the tube and began generously applying the deodorant to his armpits.
Anyone with boys who are close in age knows that if your 4th grader is going to wear deodorant, that his 2nd grade brother can not be left out! So, before I knew it, they both smelled like a room full of old men trying to impress the ladies at a bingo tournament.
The next morning, while I was making breakfast & packing lunchboxes, I smelled this overpowering odor coming toward me. Yes, both boys had caked on the Old Spice before they went off to school. I asked "how many times did you rub the deodorant under your arm?" "At least 4 times Mom" they answered. I explained that the purpose is to keep one from stinking, not adding to the problem.
Later that afternoon when they came home from school, I asked if anyone noticed their wonderful aroma. My oldest said he was sniffing his friends to see if anyone else was wearing their deodorant...to which his father replied, "that's not cool to go around smelling your friends". My youngest gave the most surprising answer - apparently he sat near a girl who he said didn't smell pleasant herself. He said he had to continually raise his armpit and take a sniff of the Old Spice to keep from having to smell her.
I know that doesn't sound nice, but at least he didn't tell her she stunk. Instead, it now appears that I have one child who smells his friends, and another who sniffs himself. All because the school decided to teach the 4th grade boys about hygiene. Thanks a lot!!!
Oh well, at least I can say that things are NEVER boring at my house. I pray you all have a wonderful, sweet smelling day!
