So many choices, but my Halls cough drop only told me to go for it, singular. I figured I better sleep on it, so I took a nap.
After I awoke, I decided maybe my cough drop wanted me to go to Costco. It had been such a grueling day that I almost worked up a sweat, which is easy to do simply walking to the car in Orlando during September. That reminded me, I needed deodorant.
So many choices – do I want my underarms to smell like pomegranate and lemon verbena or cucumber and green tea? I hate sweating enough without letting everyone know I’m doing it by the sweet smell of cucumber being released from my armpits. I don’t understand putting fragrance in deodorant. Isn’t deodorant by definition the removal of odor? Yes, I know it can also disguise smells, but who wants to smell like a cucumber? And, since I was at Costco that meant that if I purchased either of the above items I would smell like that for months thanks to the warehouse package.
I headed to Target to pick up some unscented deodorant and a few other items. I walked past this display of Coffee Mate. The label is confusing. Is this made for girl scouts or by girl scouts or out of girl scouts? Are there crumbled cookies in it mimicking what would happen if you dunked a cookie in your coffee? Somebody should revise the package and put the words “girl scouts” above the flavor, maybe throw in the word cookie. All we really know is there are artificial flavors inside. Sounds yummy. That pumpkin spice latte is sounding better and better.
