They need to breathe

Being at work this week has been a little tough. Fortunately, on Tuesday we had an employee appreciation event outside the office. I was giving C, the benevolent, a ride to the event and we got on the topic of men and their weird, nasty habits. I told C that I had seen a guy in the locker room the night before lift his leg, then spray antiperspirant on his genitals, then proceed to bend over, spread his cheeks with one hand and spray his bung hole with antiperspirant. It was one of the strangest things I've ever seen. Please, if anyone thinks this is normal, let me know and I'll stop freaking out about it. Anyway, C and I got to talking about how not sweating down there could cause problems with backed up sweat glands, leading to boils, etc. C stated emphatically, "Genitals need to breathe." I couldn't agree more, I guess. She then went on to describe a scenario in which a sexual partner might find the use of genital antiperspirant unappealing. I won't describe that for you though. C knows it already, but she's the best employee I've got. She's the only employee I've got right now, but the title of best still means something.

Hi Mike!

Are you sure you were at the gym? Because I distinctly recall the vet doing the exact same thing to my German Shephard for hot spots last summer......

He told me to brush him too...I guess if that random guy wips out a brush next time - I would get vaccinated! ;-)

eeeewwwwwwww! That is strange and gross and Bob says illegal. Other peoples habits are interesting aren't they.

That is unbelievable and I'm shocked - shocked, I tell you! - to learn that people still use spray deodorant.

Now might be a good time to scope out some other gyms.

Are you sure it wasn't an anti-fungal spray?

I can believe someone is creepy enough to do this. But stupid enough to do it in a public place? Seriously?

Yes, I believe we can euthanize people for being too stupid. Sign me up if you need backup!

MJ- It definitely smelled like anti-perspirant. I didn't want to look too closely. If it was an anti-fungal, would he want to apply that to his a-hole? What does a fungusy a-hole look like?
Eeeek.

Anti-fungal or anti-perspirant: either way that's really really strange
