Today, at dinner…
Me: I’m not wearing deodorant (antiperspirant) anymore. You can’t tell can you?
Abe: Not unless it’s what smelled like skunk yesterday.
But really, Yes I stopped using my antiperspirant because I don’t want to use anything with aluminum anymore and all antiperspirants have it as the main active ingredient. Honestly, I don’t stink though so whatever. The skunk smell wasn’t really me, it was a figment of his imagination…or a skunk.
There’s a lot of horrible things happening in the world right now but I would just like to share one of my biggest nightmares: eating an artificial blue food.
These were mixed into a bag of Welch’s fruit snacks that I dove into tonight to try and satiate my sweet tooth. I’ve eaten them before, but I don’t remember anything blue in there (hopefully). This time I ate like WHO KNOWS HOW MANY before I noticed what had just transpired. Artificial blue foods totally freak me the F out. I just don’t think that food should be blue unless it’s an actual blueberry or something. They’re probably harmless but when you’re a crazy person like me, it will mess with you. I’m just imagining my body breaking this stuff down, and imagining that it’s taking a much longer time because blue is so Wrong. I really wish I had more to offer tonight other than skunk smell and blue foods, but I can’t think because my body is being invaded by blue dye.
