Houston Ninja Deodorant: Strong Enough For Chuck Norris But Made For A Ninja!


I walked into the kitchen yesterday to see the eldest of my mini-Infidels, Sunbum, standing there draped over the counter clad totally in black from head to toe.
She wore her favorite black basketball shorts coupled with a solid black T-shirt. Black anklet socks adorned her feet while her nails gleamed bright with glossy black fingernail polish. And to finish off the look, she perched a black knit cap atop her pony-tailed head.
I remarked that she must have joined the Houston Ninja Squad because only a Houston Ninja struggling with our extreme temperatures and high humidity would think to eschew the stuffy traditional ninja gear to adopt black shorts and T-shirts as an official uniform.
Sunbum just laughed.
It's no good to camouflage yourself to become one with the shadows during the black of night if your prey can SMELL your stanky self coming at them from a mile away. I think that's something like Lesson #420 in the Ninja Handbook.

So in Houston, you can really only be a Ninja for about twenty minutes, till you have to go home and shower and destink yourself again.

That's rough. I wonder if they have a lot of chafing.

You are the greatest parent. Most EWB ladies would have jumped right to, "Omygosh! You've gone GOTH!!!!!" Especially with her Twilight-love. Ninja is WAY cooler than Goth.

She can come here to Manitoba. In the winter you NEVER have to worry about extreme heat (now extreme cold is a whole other story ; )

I don't think we have many ninjas in Houston for that very reason ... we are also short on Abominable Snowmen and eskimos.

LOL that is so funny. Black in TX AZ, NM, and really anything south of us is just asking for rankness. LOL thanks for making me laugh often.

But black is so slimming.

Just freezing going on here.
