Eye of the Tiger, Armpit of the Musk Ox

July 22, 2010 by AnnMarie

This week I’ve been burning both ends of the candle and have a blow torch aimed at the middle of it. I’ve been picking up odd jobs – labor intensive type jobs like house cleaning and working for the moving company. It means I’ve really been sweating it out. At the end of the work day (which is sometimes late into the night) I have this layer of grime and sweat on me that has a distinct odor. Ah, to be feminine.

Well anyways, with all the hours in the gym and running at high noon, I’m no stranger to sweat and B.O. But I have realized something; when you workout hard, you earn your sweat. It’s a completely different kind of sweat than when you sweat doing things like, um, working. And it has as distinct odor. It’s unique because instead smelling like triumph over stubborn mildew stains, it smells like personal triumph.
