My best friend Sara and I wrote this song in 1990 driving from my house to meet my parents at Taco Bell in Jackson, California.

When we got out of the car we promptly sang the song to my parents in the parking lot.

Luckily they clapped, then laughed.

I had forgotten about this until I recently reread one of my old journals, this was part of an entry from when I was 18.

“The Deodorant Song” (sang to the tune of “Dream a Little Dream”)

Bad odors millions find you
Stale scents that leave a trail behind you
But oh those smells whatever they be
Wear deodorant for me

This may not seem so easy
It’s just a simple way to please me
But if you find this too hard to do
I’ll just say adieu to you
