Little Brother is just so desperate to be a Big Kid. As the youngest in a family with a wide age spread, that’s not such a shocker.
For at least a year he’s been asking me to buy him Axe. Since he’s not one to be restrained in his use of anything, there was no way I was going to let him get anything he could liberally spray all over himself.
But just before Easter I was in CVS and I noticed that Axe makes shampoo and body wash. I’m all about encouraging cleanliness, so I bought him a bottle of shampoo and tucked it in his Easter basket. He’s been a happily clean kid for almost two months now.
This morning after his shower, he came over to me and asked, “How do I smell?”
Me: “Um, you smell like Axe.”
LB: “Yeah. I’m going to get all the girls.”
Me: “Oh really?”
LB: “Yeah. That’s what happens when you use Axe. Girls really like it.”
Me: “Not this girl.”
LB: “You don’t have to like it. You already have a husband.”
