Tom was like, "Could you pick me up more deodorant when you go to the grocery store? I'm almost out."
I said sure, no problem. I knew he used Degree deodorant. He used to get Old Spice, but he switched to Degree when he was deployed because it was all they had. Now he prefers it.
So I went to the grocery store and saw this:
I hadn't had caffeine yet. I blinked in confusion. Did he want 24 hour protection? 48? 48 sounded better. Wouldn't you want more protection? Then there was sport protection. Run protection. Protection just because.
"Is this how men feel when we send them to the store for stuff?" I said out loud. An old lady shuffling past gaped at me.
I should have taken a picture of the deodorant Tom uses. Because I was so completely lost. I almost asked a man what deodorant he thought was best, but I didn't want to frighten him.
In the end, I picked the one that had 48 hour protection. I thought it made the most sense. But Tom was like, "Er. That's not the one I get."
Do you know the one he gets has TIME RELEASED MOLECULES? I mean? And men say girl crap is weird.
I tried, guys. I tried.
