Like Roses

      I am a creature of habit.  I like routines wherever possible.  I like to find the most efficient order to do things and then stick to that order and I like to use the same hygiene products that I know are tried and true.  I switch between the same 2 brands of shampoo.  I have used the same kind of soap  forever.  I use the same toothpaste and same deodorant I have used for at least the last 10 years.  I do not like any of this disrupted and I don't adjust well if it is.  A little OCD?  Yes, but it is the way I am.

   This being said, the other day I realized I was running drastically low on deodorant and stopped to pick some more up at our local Wal-mart.  When I approached the deodorant section I came to find that my particular deodorant choice completely out.  Now I'm sure there are plenty of people out there that can just select a different kind from the several choices offered but this chick is not one of them.  They had the same brand and kind I use but in two different scents than the one I like.  I buy the cucumber melon scented version and they only had the original "Clean scent" and "Wild Rose" versions.  I knew the products work and I knew there is no way I could wait to pick some up since I was likely to forget if I didn't do it now.  I also knew that no place else was open and these were my only options.  After eliminating the "Wild Rose" as a choice (I hate floral scents) I grabbed the "Original Clean" and made my way to the check out.

   Today was the first day I had to wear the "Original Clean"and let me tell you it is definitely not the smell I think of when I think clean. It was bad but I didn't have any other choice but to go with it at least for today.  How bad could it be anyway?  I don't typically smell my regular deodorant throughout the day, I just don't smell body odour and that works for me.  Of course all I could smell ALL day today was this "Original Clean" crap.  As I mentioned I HATE floral scents.  "Original Clean" smells exactly like I've had a rose bush in a head lock all day.  It is horrid.  It is all I can smell and it has given me a headache since I spread it's disgusting stench under my pits this morning.  I need a shower just to rid myself of it's stink.  It looks like the "Original Clean" is going to do find itself in the bottom of the bathroom trash because that stuff is gross.  I almost think I would rather go without any deodorant and risk smelling like an onion farmer....almost.
