The great smell of…

I was in the supermarket, minding my own business, and just happened to be near the gents’ toiletries section. A man, probably in his mid 40s, moved past me to browse the anti-perspirants. Without hesitating, he selected a particular spray on deodorant. Then he lifted up his shirt, one armpit at a time, applied a suitable dose of deodorant, and returned the canister to the shelf. He walked on and went about the rest of his business. (If he had been unshaven, I might have expected him to really get down to business.) I was shocked. I never saw that happen in the UK, but when I think about it, it surely must have. Thank goodness he didn’t use a roll-on. I think, from now on, I’ll take the deodorant from the back of the shelf…
