Hope you’re all staying cool out there. Nasty weather, or as I like to call it, “shweddy ball weather” hasn’t reached L.A. just yet, but I know some of you out there are enduring some pretty intense heatwaves and humidity. I dedicate this post to those of you wearing an extra layer of deodorant. Yeah, you with the chaffed inner-thighs and unfortunate tan lines. Also you with the “bat wings”.

Happy Summer!
