Funny story- due to my new shopping habits, I am getting low on a few of our staple items. I have been waiting for good sales to come so I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel on some things. I am really picky about the kind of body lotion I use. I don't like anything heavily floral scented but I don't like lotions that don't smell at all. I have purchased so many different kinds of creams from Bath & Body Works, only to hate them once I begin using them. I have a whole basket of mostly full lotion bottles.
One evening after my shower, I realized I was completely and totally out of my favorite B&BW lotion. I mean, nothing even left in the lid. So I opted for a backup bottle. Hubby started gagging and told me I was never allowed to use that kind again. Our bedroom smelled like cheap, old lady perfume. I wanted to take another shower.
The next day, I ran completely out of deodorant. The plastic base was poking out and there was no product left around it. I kept trying to get all I could out of the corners of the stick.
Then I sat on the side of my bed and reached for my body lotion. Ugh! I am not using the nasty stuff from last time! I again raided Hubby's stash. He keeps a large bottle of manly-scented lotion on his dresser. I smeared it all over, thankful that it was less potent than the flower garden stuff. I was walking around my house smelling just like my husband. It made me feel close to him but not in the way I wanted.
It's been a few days now and I'm still on the sticky deodorant and masculine lotion. (Although, I did figure out that a sprinkle of baby powder after applying the deodorant works wonders!) Fortunately, I'm getting a good deal on deodorant at CVS today so hopefully I won't attract any ladies with my manly smell.
