just checkin'

Pit checks.
The casual sniff.
The "hey I'm going to raise my arm to run my fingers through my hair and nonchalantly slide my nose by my pit."
The quick pit finger rub and sniff- SUPERSTAR!
The possibilities are endless.
Everyone has their own technique;
and if you say you don't,
you are totally lying.
We're honest around these parts.
So let your hair down,
and admit you sniff your pits- on occasion.
instead of performing a self pit check,
I performed a spouse pit check.
We were at church.
The hubs sat down beside me and said
I feel like I stink, do I stink?
he had never said that before...
what did he want me to do?
I didn't smell anything,
but I wasn't really close enough to get a good sniff...
what was he wanting from me?
Here, hug me real quick.
Tyler, you want me to sniff YOUR pit?
Yeah, real quick, don't make it obvious. hug me.
so I did it.
I side hugged my husband so I could sniff his pit.
thankfully, all I smelled was his man deodorant.
In case you are ever in a similar situation,
here are instructions on how to do the side hug pit check.
the side hug pit check (while sitting)-
He puts his arm around you and you give him a hug.  
While hugging him you casually lay your head on his chest.
When you're finished with the hug, 
quickly slide your head past his pit and deeply inhale.
There ya go.
the spouse/partner pit check.
If done correctly,
everyone around you will just think you are being sweet.
oh the things we, girls, do for our guys.

Don't be shy, share your techniques!

I myself am a fan of the good old "Pretend your nose is itchy and your hands are full/in your pocket so you need to itch it with your shoulder" move!

I've always thought side hugs to be awkward, now even more so because i'll be convinced it's related to body odor detection.

So funny! I think I sort of do the same thing. It's much better than just sticking your nose in there! I'm a new follower from the GFC hop and I'd love a follow back at http://www.two-in-diapers.blogspot.com when you get the chance! :)
