It is official: I rub myself down with lavender oil. It makes me smell pretty...uh, strong. Since I started my radiation one of the concerns I've had has been getting radiation burns on my treated areas. I got some tips from ladies who have had breast cancer about how to minimize the damage caused by the radiation.
The tip that I chose to run with is using lavender essential oil mixed with a carrier oil. The carrier oil that I use is olive oil. I apply this mixture after each treatment, then again before I go to bed. I can't have any oil on my body before treatment or else it will fry me.
Anyway, lavender in its "essential" state, whatever the hell that means, actually stinks. But the name is still incredibly gay. Plus the thought of me spreading oil all over my chest and neck just seems so TIGF to me that I felt like telling you all about it.
Here's proof that it is TIGF. I was in the dressing room only in my underwear, spreading the oil on my chest, when another dude gets all undressed and has a conversation with me about what I am doing. So, he's naked and I'm in my underwear spreading oil across my pecs. We are both having a conversation about skin care--very gay. Though, we ended the conversation with a firm handshake, thus, keeping our heterosexuality intact. That was the weirdest handshake I've ever been involved in...the greasiest too.
I think I've said too much.
