Person hygiene—your no longer misunderstood friend!

I spent the last few days at a high school speech tournament, also known as that awkward time after puberty but before deodorant. Admittedly, it’s really hard to smell good and have great breath after a 14 hour day drinking soda and eating junk food in between rounds. As the day progressed, I started wondering how long deodorant really lasts and covering my mouth with my hands to smell my own breath. It occurred to me that this isn’t the first time I’ve had these concerns towards the end of a long day, so I think in the future I’m going to bring the following items with me to tournaments:

--travel sized deodorant stick
--gum
--cologne (“Eternity,” thanks honey!)
--comb
--lint roller

Does this make me a vain, self-absorbed bastard or just a concerned hygiene zealot?

  • Do you mean to share with others? Or for yourself? :)

  • Think about it this way: the lack of those items effectively makes you me.

    So, no, I don't think it makes you a zealot; certainly it doesn't make you self-absorbed. It is the self-absorbed guys who make you smell their stank breath and BO through prep-time.

  • It makes you sound like a guy to doesn't want to knock down someone with uncontrolled body oder.

    Kudos to good choices.

  • I was actually thinking it made you sound like a mini-van driving soccer mom.
