I never wear cologne. I never have other than a few times in high school. I know this is probably frowned upon by society, but that is just the way I am. I was able to land a wife using only my normal musk, so I feel like it has not hampered me to this point. When I say normal musk it should be noted that is a showered musk accented with deodorant not a smelly, sweaty musk. I am not the stinky kid.
Since it is well known that everything we do can and will influence our kids, I have to wonder how this practice will affect Braden. Will he think not wearing cologne is the best way to go? Will he be ostracized from the normal cologne wearing society for this decision? The last thing I want to do is lead Braden astray.
Good can come from aversion to cologne as well. No one likes the guy who bathes in his cologne especially if that cologne is high karate or even worse sex panther. I could be saving Braden from a scene like the one that takes place in Anchorman.
On the other hand Sam Malone often wore too much cologne and it never hurt him with the ladies. I have no idea what is the correct answer to this conundrum. I am pretty sure that my natural shower scent way of life is not the norm. I guess the real solution is for me to find something more important to worry about.
