Yin Yang

One day I'm getting a free night at Borgata and the next day I'm talking about my armpits for money.

I'm doing a focus group today about antiperspirants actually.  For 90 minutes. How I or anyone can talk about antiperspirants for ninety minutes is beyond me.  Hopefully they won't be poking at my armpits to see how it's working.  Nah, that'd never happen. 

I made sure to shave though.

Just in case.

So how did they select me for this?

They sent me an email asking if I used deodorant or antiperspirant as they were looking for only one of these criteria.

Hmmmmm 

I figured most people would pick deodorant so I went the other way and voila!  They need the opinion of an antiperspirant user.

But it got me thinking.....

Which is better deodorant or antiperspirant?  One makes you not smell and the other stops you from sweating.  Shouldn't there be a product that does both?

I will suggest that today.

Perspire smart and get paid for it!

Is this some sort of joke post? All antiperspirants include deoderants of some kind. And who the hell only uses deoderant. Animals!

Joseie - a freezeout tournament is the most common kind of tournament - you cannot rebuy or add-on, you only start with the chips you're given at the start.

A mega splash - not sure, you'd probably want to call the Oklahoma poker room. However, splash the pot promotions have the poker room adding $$$ to the table's pot, so that might provide a clue to what a mega splash is.

Love the blog, BTW.

No Joke!

For real! I never really thought about it before and always assumed antiperspirants had deodorant too. I'll find out lots about it this afternoon!

The person asked "Are you Italian?" and you said yes.. then she asked "How long are your armpit hairs?".. and you were in like Flynn for the Antiperspirant testing.

Of course antiperspirants have deodorant too - but the stuff in antiperspirants has always made me itch like crazy, so I am an animal that uses deodorant only.

I may be a bit damp, but so what. The stuff still works...

Josie said...

well if it's any consolation you'd look more like an animal if you were scratching your pits all day. blah.

I'm with Heff. If I use the anti-perspirant I scratch my itchy armpits all day like a gorilla.

Have fun tonight. Maybe they'll make you exercise for an hour and then talk about how their product worked for the last half hour.

I'm a deoderant only user myself, as the antipersperant aggravate my psoriasis. Actually the best stuff to use is something called Rock Crystal. It is what it says, a rock but the mineral in it kills the bacteria that causes body oder. Damn things cost about 3-4 bucks and last frikkin forever and usually work until you actually wash it off. Still sweat like a racehorse tho.

BTW, why do I have to hit the publish button twice for it to work. Sometimes it double posts.

@JT - lol that's funny. no there was no exercising...

@wolfie - rub a rock in your armpit for deodorant? Blah...use speed stick.

Wolfshead said...

You pay whatever for speed stick, I'll keep my rock and extra poker money
