And today, we rebel

15 and I were rebels today, while out shopping. We’ve been conditioned to go with the flow. To buy what we’ve always bought (or had bought for us). And never question it. Well tonight, we questioned it.
We bought men’s deodorant.
Have you ever wondered what Alpine Splash smells like? Or Wanderlust? Or Arctic Rush?

Women’s deodorant gets scents like Shower Clean or Powder Fresh or Lavender.

Men’s deodorant not only has cooler sounding fragrance names, they come in bigger tubes (containers? cylinders? What do you call it?)

So we bought Men’s Deodorant. If you smell Volcano or Mt Fiji in the halls tomorrow, it may be me (smirk).

  1. Sounds like a fun shopping trip–to rebel together! Your observation that we most often shop on autopilot without questioning why we’re making the choices we are is eye opening and important. I love that smirk at the ending, too–letting readers in on the secret joke with you.
