Deodorant Etiquette

I think I forgot to put BO-derant under one pit... not both, just one. I am thinking this because I reached to grab something and got a WHIFF--now, my question is this: Do I have to wash the pit before applying deodorant or do I just apply on stinky pit? I never know what to do in these situations, and Miss Manners has not answered any of my letters since the "does swimming in a chlorinated pool count as a bath for children" question. Usually I would wash, but I am not going anywhere or doing anything today so really... what is the point? Oh the things that dominate my brain...

I say go for the "coverup" and just sploosh it on there never mind the washing. I've gotten so "pit"iful (heehee, pun intended)that I keep the Degree in the kitchen because I know I'll open one of those cupboards eventually and therefore see the Degree and not forget to apply. I have that stuff stored all over the house...in the laundry room, kitchen, bedroom and sometimes even in the bathroom. Also, I carry a tiny one in my purse. Also, yes, pool counts as a bath even if you don't take a shower after. Chlorine is even cleaner than soap, right?

Laura, my husband is the WORST when it comes to forgetting to put on deodorant. I can see me forgetting because I am forming the minds and lives of our children everyday--that is a lot of pressure! What does he do? Just protect the free world... blah blah blah

heehee, my hubs too. If I add ONE, SINGLE, EXTRA thing to his "morning routine" such as...leave out cookies for his co-workers. He will EVERY TIME forget. Then he tells me how his life is soooo hard what with having to get up early and get dressed every morning...yeah, hun, I get it. I have to train him to add that one thing (what ever it may be) for weeks on end before it becomes a part of the morning routine, yet, every morning I'm faced with a gazillion different situations and variables involving 6 different people and I'm supposed to adapt. Hmmmm. In a way, my hubs is protecting the free world too (the free market economy that is-he puts the pre-cast concrete on top of buildings and right now is building a huge prison), but still, I don't think that that is an excuse for FORGETTING DEODERANT!!!!!!!! Sheesh, you might as well protect all our noses whilst protecting the free world. Hahahaha
