Wow, I’m the worst blogger ever! I had no idea how difficult it would be to find the time to write a little bit. I did, however, just come to the realization that I don’t need to write a long, drawn-out post each time I log in here. It would be much better to write short little thoughts frequently and long ones when I actually have the time. My promise to You (You, who chooses to check in on the off-chance that I’ve actually posted anything at all) is to get something up once every few days … realistically, let’s aim for once per week, and I’ll try to increase from there. Yes, I’m very vainly picturing hoards of people clicking on AshleyBloggeur.com, consistently being disappointed by its lack of content. That’s what it looks like in my head.
So here’s the deal. I haven’t worn deodorant in at least three years, I’d say. Before that grosses you out, let me explain to you that, in general, I’m probably one of the best-smelling people in Austin. No, really. I love to bathe. I constantly moisturize. My clothes are always Gain-fresh. I’m not a fan of perfume, but I love to smell clean. I was once told that the only thing a person should ever smell like is soap, and I think that’s da’ truth! I have a super-secret scent that I’ve used for years. When people ask me what it is, I play dumb. “Ummmm, I’m not sure, I just put some lotion on?” It’s my scent; I don’t want all of Austin using it up! Occasionally I’m backed into a corner and have to fess up, but for the most part I keep it to myself. This sounds extremely conceited, I KNOW! But I’m only defending myself because I did start off by stating:
I HAVEN’T WORN DEODORANT IN THREE YEARS.
This fact gets me to where I’m going. I’ve noticed that when I sweat, it’s rarely a traditional B.O. smell. It’s strange, my armpits smell overwhelmingly of chlorine. Yeah, like a swimming pool. We’ve all heard that when you sweat, you are ridding your body of toxins, right? My theory is that my body is being pumped full of the chlorine that’s in our drinking water. Then, of course, my kidneys filter it out, and my sweat kicks it on out through the underarms. Plausible? Or am I crazy? If it’s true, then it seems like it’s an extremely bad idea to wear an antiperspirant. Something that keeps you from sweating? No! Sweating it out is crazy important.
I feel very strongly about both my theory and the evils of deodorant. Noah, however, rolls his eyes at my hippy paranoia and stays faithful to his Old Spice. In three or four years we’ll see which side of the debate Liam falls on.
Lastly, but not leastly, I leave you with a few pictures. Just because they’re funny. I can make myself quite literally LOL with my new fave app – CamWow. I highly recommend you search it, download it, and then LOL with it. Wow, I should be paid for that promotion.
