A public service announcement:
Yes, it’s summer, yes, it’s hot out and sticky and gross, and hard to keep hold of personal hygiene what with all the sunscreen gobbed all over your face making your sunglasses slide right off your nose in a greasy deluge of sweat. Nasty. We’re all in the same boat here. But please, people. Deodorant. And if you’re not a deodorant person, fine, I can live with that. I even like some of you unwashed masses, with dreadlocks and hippie clothes, biking to work (yay!) and helping to save the planet. If that describes you, then go ahead and skip the deodorant.
This is for you, smelly guy with me in the elevator this morning, and you, stinky woman putting splenda in her coffee next to me at the cramped milk-and-sugar station in the coffee shop this morning. If you don’t believe in it, fine, but please, just don’t put on eyeshadow or a tie, tricking me into thinking it’s safe to stand next to you, and then overlook deodorant.
PS – I have yet to encounter a stinky knitter. So there!
