Deodorend – n. The last 1/2 inch of stick deodorant that won’t turn up out of the tube, and thus cannot be used without inducing lacerations.
You are running low on funds, but, wouldn’t you know it! You are also running low on deodorant, and you have found the deodorend. This usually only occurs with solid deodorants, but even the roll-ons have their version of it. You can attempt to put that last tiny bit of antiperspirant on your pits, and risk the cuts to smell better. Or you can dig that chunky goo out with the end of a barette, or a lipstick brush, or razor handle, or whatever happens to be there. If you are one of those people who don’t shave, and end up with a dry roll-on, expect an instant waxing of sorts in a very sensitive place. Even if the skin there is bare, a dry roll-on can leave a burn that won’t go away for some time. So, to prevent this, buy deodorants in twin packs, or maybe just two at a time, because the savings in your wallet is nowhere worth taking it out from your hide, literally. Deodorends are not fun to deal with, so just avoid them.
