underarmy: YAY for minty pits!

I can't remember exactly when I first heard Jenny talking about her minty pits, but I do recall it getting my attention.  We were on the phone, and she was online, checking email maybe, when I heard her suck in all her breath and exclaim, "OMG, they're selling my deodorant again!  Minty pits!" ...more
