The Language of Deodorant

So it seems that Husband and I are in the point in our marriage where we can have a whole conversation with a well-placed stick of deodorant.
When I woke up this morning I saw this in the bathroom sink:
It was a coded message from Husband, and I knew instantly what it meant.
Morning, sweetie. I know you asked me last night if I needed anything before you made your weekly grocery shopping trip. But I didn’t realize that I was almost out of deodorant until this morning. I would tell you right now, but I don’t want to wake you up. And I’m running late for work, so I don’t have time to write a note. Sorry! Love you.
I left him a message in the same spot.
Hi, sweetie. I figured you might need more deodorant, and your message in the sink confirmed it this morning. And because I love you (and good hygiene, of course), I bought you a new stick of deodorant. Here it is. Love you.
Who needs text messaging when you have toiletry messaging?

Well at least he tells you. Mine will just not tell me anything and then later on say, "Baby I'm out of deodorant!" like it's my personal cause in life to track when he's out of toiletries. Sheesh!

Hey I just found your blog... cute!

This story makes me laugh because it happens almost every other day with the toilet paper rolls... I always try to leave a spare roll under the sink. When he refills it, instead of getting a new roll from the storage closet he simply puts the empty roll on the counter. Aka- "babe there's not another spare roll under the sink!" ...haha.
