You know Barry I just got this fantastic deodorant. (eyebrows raised to near my 
hairline) And it is really great. (Knowing look leveled, slight dimple at the 
corner of my mouth.)

It really helps with, you know, the odors...(pregnant pause) you know (head 
nods up and down a few times.

If you need help finding coupons for some to reduce the cost, I would be happy 
to help you find some. ( Now I am locking onto your eyes like a tiger and a 
spring buck.)

I have many friends who found it highly beneficial to use some of this daily to 
avoid social embarrassment.( Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.)

Of course I'm not implying that you stink like a troll who spent the day 
underground mining precious metals next to a blast furnace, but I just wanted 
you to know that I believe that you might find that fewer people have to blow 
lunch after spending time in an elevator with you if you enjoyed some of this 
wonderful product.(Now my hand is on your shoulder, my head is tilted slightly 
to the right, and I am continuously nodding like a bobblehead doll in the rear 
window of a car going over cobble stones.)

Deodorant.  Just say'n, deodorant.  Might want to consider some sometime...

(I hope the community appreciates the restraint it took to pass up using some 
other products for that not so fresh feeling.)
