The Scent Of A Man

My father has a habit that I really, really hate. Every morning when he's taken his shower, he sprays deodorant on. That's all fine, don't want my dad to walk around smelling like I-dunno-what. It's the amount of deodorant he puts on. It's like walking into the midst of a nukelear cloud, only it's made of anti-perspirant. So, if I happen to have to use the bathroom, where he puts on his deodorant, after he's been in there, I hold my breath till I have opened the window and let in some fresh air.

T does this too, but I've managed to explain to him that it's very uncomfortable to walk into a haze of Lynx, so he either doesn't do it where it will be obnoxious to me, or he opens the window.

But please tell me this: why do you have to spray it on for 30 seconds at a time, both left and right? Do you think it will last longer? Or that it will smell better? Do you think we find you more attractive if we can smell you from a mile away?? Neither is the case. Buy some decent products and apply them with wisdom, that's far better.
