Don't Judge A Book By It's Ridiculously Sexy Cover

This morning I got up early,

spent ten minutes getting my hair just right,

trimmed my beard,

ironed a nice pair of dress pants,

put on a collared shirt,

AND a tie,

shined my dress shoes,

color coordinated a nice sweater to match the shirt / tie -

and forgot to put on the deodorant.

No matter how nice you look - if you are the smelly kid - you are still the smelly kid.

I hope that you didn't dress nice for a client meeting -- then the entire purpose would have been defeated...

Marie said...

True. Unless you are purposefully trying to ward off people you don't like. Then it's ok.

Matt said...

Thats just a waste of a good day right there.

This is why boys need a purse so they can carry deodorant in it.

Hex said...

I know it was a bad point for him career-wise, but I think this is further proof of my theory that we all need Christian Bale to walk around with us to ..gently remind us of the times where we might appear amateurish or not know what the fuck we're doing.

Kristen said...

I totally feel you.

I hate it when I do that.

Ben said...

Wow. You were so close too.

pj said...

A litte extra cologne helps that out. Sucks though you wrinkle all you clothes taking em off and putting em back on. Just go back to bed

stealthnerd said...

You're kind of a like those pointillist paintings--really pretty from far away but don't get too close cuz the stink will burn your eyes.

Or something like that.

Angela said...

That's when you go to the bathroom and scrub your armpits before whatever thing you have to do that day.

Regardez Moi said...

cvs. go get a 99c travel sized deo for your bo and keep it in your desk.

surviving myself said...

I thought I smelled something when I clicked over here.

Heff said...

Just spray some deo on the sweater pits. MASK THE FUNK !

justjp said...

A sad lesson we all have learned.

Kellie said...

Oh no! I've done that before too. It takes about 1-2 hours for me to begin to notice that I'm not smelling so fresh and so clean like usual and then I freak out trying to remember if I put it on or not. And once I realize I haven't I flip out about it until I can sneak away to put some on.

Bethie said...

Just try not to get caught sniffing through the day to see how bad it's getting, maintain a distance of 5 paces, and everything should be gravy. Funky, funky gravy.

LadyFriend said...

That is why Santa got you the mini Old Spice deodorant!

moooooog35 said...

You get sweaty when you play XBox?

Or are you saying that you actually work at some type of job?

Color me confused.

Liebchen said...

Ha - I got an email from a guy friend of mine lamenting same thing. All dressed up, out the door, and forgot the deodorant.

Which kind of sucked 'cause he was going on a job interview.

Poetry Sue said...

Perhaps.. But I'll take the well dressed smelly kid over the slovenly smelly kid any day.

alexa - cleveland's a plum said...

you have to wear a tie to work?!?!

btdubs i can smell you from here.

Allison M. said...

Don't they have that in the men's bathroom? We have a spray deo in the women's bathroom.

YoYo said...

Which is exactly why you need to invest in a good man purse so you can carry a sample sized deodorant for emergencies.

Arjewtino said...

Trimming my beard is one of my favorite parts of the day.

Christina_the_wench said...

* sniffs pits*

I'm good.

Sucks to be you.

TishTash said...

Just sit quietly in the back and don't raise your arms. You'll make it through alright, Smelly Kid.

Bon Don said...

Mmmm musky man smell my favorite!!

Call me crazy but I don't mind a little funk especially if you are "ridiculously sexy" ... TMI?

insomniaclolita said...

HAHAHAHAHA

I never forget it.

oops i hope i dont jinx it.

LiLu said...

Well, maybe you shouldn't have jogged up and down the stairs before work. Gawd.

Lauren said...

That's what lunch breaks are for. RUN to the nearest CVS! RUN!

Baking With Plath said...

I hate when that happens! That is why I started carrying deodorant around in my purse. I'd rather be That Weird Girl With Deodorant In Her Purse than That Smelly Girl.

D.O. for your B.O.

rs27 said...

Just blame it on someone else.

Sarah said...

court date huh?

Tegan said...

Hahahaha!! Just fell upon your blog and certainly loved the first post I read :D

Giggle Pixie said...

P.U.

You could have rubbed yourself with a Snickers bar. That would have attracted women by the thousands. :-)

Your Ill-fitting Overcoat said...

This is literally maybe the fifth blog post I've read this week in which the blogger admitted to forgetting to wear deodorant. Is it National Skip Antiperspirant Week and I missed it? Or is it just winter?

Maxie said...

My boss NEVER wears deodorant. It's awesome.
