With Christmas AND the end of the world happening almost at the same time, I’ve fallen behind in my “stuff” – including Moxie-Dude’s Friday updates and I apologize for that. *head down in quasi-shame*
On the bright side, I’m almost done my shopping and as you know from reading this, I. Am. Not. A. Shopper.
But something happened last weekend that totally made my stint at the mall worth it . . .
It was Saturday and Greg and I were in the Fairview shopping centre when we walked by a HUGE 6 x 10 poster of Brad Pitt’s head. In case you don’t know this (as I didn’t up until just recently) Brad Pitt is the new – and first male – sponsor for Channel 5.
I guess Greg saw the commercials of Brad declaring his passion for this perfume because he suddenly got all excited – like he was walking by the real Brad Pitt – and doused himself with the perfume.
Have you noticed my use of the word “perfume” TWICE just now?
PERFUME for women is not the same as COLOGNE for men.
I didn’t say anything as he indulged. Possibly because I was in shock and possibly because I have a mean streak. My only repercussion to this is that I had to listen to him smell his arm for the rest of the afternoon as he said, “this smells like a woman. Why would Brad Pitt push something that doesn’t smell manly?”
Well we all know the answer to that question:
BECAUSE CHANNEL 5 IS FOR WOMEN.
Oh and get this:
IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN.
Later that day Greg went online and realized his, um, misunderstanding.
“How many men have made that mistake?” He asked as though Brad’s campaign was a deliberate attempt to fool men all over the world.
“Only one,” I answered.
“But I even went into the men’s bathroom smelling like this!”
We spent the evening watching a marathon of The Walking Dead episodes. You know. So that Greg could remind himself of his masculinity.
