Do You Use Your Spouses Deodorant?

If this is my wife Christine reading, this post has nothing to do with the title of it. It's all about sports. I love sports!! Go football! Go team! Get those points and/or runs! Take me out to the ole Ballgame!! Am I right?!

Okay, is she gone? I used her deodorant this morning.

When I woke up, I realized I was at the end of my deodorant, which sort of has a way of sneaking up on you, and as I went to apply it, it felt like I was scrapping my skin with a jagged piece of plastic. So, what's a guy to do in this scenario? Clearly, I grabbed my wife's that was sitting on her dresser. The problem for me is not that I used her deodorant, I have no problem with that (although I might if she finds out about this), no, the issue was she bought a new brand! This wasn't the Dove Ultimate Sheer Silk I am used to! Don't you think I should have been consulted on such a decision?! Would I go buy a new car you may use occasionally without asking you?? (Poor comparison.)

So, what's the big deal? Well, that Dove stuff is great, strong enough for man but made for a woman. This new stuff she had, which I couldn't see cause it was dark in the room, smells all floral and feminine (like, perhaps, a women's antiperspirant should) and I've felt sick to my stomach all day. I tried wiping it off, but now I am sweating like crazy and still smell faintly like girl.

Have you considered buying a spare deodorant to have "on deck" for when you run out so you don't have this problem?

Do you have a desk at work? I always keep deodorant in there just in case I need it. It's good to see you are comfortable enough in your masculinity to smell like a flower all day. Maybe your wife should wear yours so she smells like a guy; then everyone will be even. And don't get a vote when she changes deodorants....

This is very disturbing! I would never want my fiance to wear my deodorant, and mine is all-natural with very little scent (nothing flowery or feminine about it). Gross! Lol. Especially since you have underarm hair and everything. Yuck :(

I gotta tell ya, Newman ... I see nothing wrong with sharing the wife's deoderant. And I wouldn't have a problem with sharing a toothbrush in an emergency. Wanna know why?

Just think for a minute about what husbands and wives (or girlfriends and boyfriends, or fiancees and fiances) share in their more *intimate* moments together.

I'll let you form that visual in your head.

There. Deoderant and toothbrushes don't seem so gross now, do they?
