My son, Kyle, just started high school this week. I don't know how that's even possible, considering his mother is so young and beautiful. (Obviously that's a joke.) I just can't believe how grown up my little boy is...Just the past few months alone have been very transformative. At the beginning of the summer, he was about an inch shorter than me and his voice was still cracking. Now, he literally towers over me and sounds like a man. Well, sort of.
Anyway, my little boy isn't so little anymore, and he's got the body odor to match. I never realized just how funkified a teen boy could be. It's like all of the raging hormones have gone right to my kid's armpits, and sometimes, you can smell him coming. Literally. Obviously, this won't do him any favors when it comes to meeting new people in a brand new school, and it certainly won't get him any dates.
Now I could just tell my child that he smells like a sewer, but this won't help his confidence much. It's hard enough being a gay teen and the discrimination he faces due to his orientation. So rather than tell him that he's rancid, I decided to take a kinder, gentler approach. I presented Kyle with a package of amazing products from the folks at Old Spice as a back to school gift that's fit for a man-in-training.
Old Spice offers a wide variety of products in several nose-friendly scents that can help cover even the most rancid of man-stenches. Stinky pits? Nasty sweat? Feet that smell like something died? Old Spice can eliminate these common odors and replace them with manly, fresh scents. They've got deodorant, antiperspirant, body wash and shampoo, soaps, and of course, body spray. These are meant to be layered, and are a definite combo for success! After all, some things are just better together!
Old Spice recently conducted a survey to see what other things men think go together as well as peas and carrots. (Said in my best Forrest Gump voice.) Check out the results:
In fact, these products work so well for the Old Spice Man-Droid that human women mistake him for a real man...Despite the fact that he's quite accident-prone and his robotic parts end up on full display quite often. Check out this hilarious video to see what I mean!
Kyle is really enjoying his Old Spice products. We chose the Fiji scent, which is very masculine and almost tropical. He has been using these products daily, layering them for optimum performance. He even told me yesterday, when he returned home from his first day of high school, that he was getting compliments on how good he smelled all day long. What a great way to start the school year right! Now maybe, just maybe, the poor kid will get a date. Not that I am ready to have a dating child, of course. That's a whole different post, entirely!
