A normal outdoor construction site wouldn’t have been very bad, but this crew installed walk-in freezers in commercial kitchens and usually worked within inches of each other. Zimmerman noticed that, somehow, Quayle and Xavier managed to work together on the opposite side of the room from him each day.
One day he asked them about it.
“Jeez, Zimmerman, you never take a shower.”
“Lay off, Quayle, I shower every day.”
Xavier piped up with, “Maybe you should invest in some stock in a deodorant company.”
“Give it a rest, huh?”
The next morning, as they walked into the freezer, Zimmerman was surprised to hear Quayle say, “I’m working with him today.”
And, almost immediately, Xavier said, “No, you take the other side; I’m working with him.”
Zimmerman smiled and looked down at his SECRET weapon: “Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman.”

I want you to write a poem, scene, essay, article, whatever you want to write, explaining why one must use deodorant (or should not). Here are the rules and guidelines I want you to follow:
- You must use all twenty-six letters of the alphabet at the start of a different word. You will end up having at least twenty-six words, but should use more. :-) (As an example, the sentence before this one fulfilled the requirements for "y," "w," "e," "u," "h," "a," "l," "t," "s," "b," and "m.")
- It can be a scene with dialog between two people (or a group of people). It can be a seminar type thing, a scientific article, an essay. This is open to whatever style you're in the mood to write. :-)
- Make sure it is complete - with a punch-line and everything. (Don't have it be too long, though.)
- The word can be a name (but not an animal).
