    How does it go? Horses sweat, men perspire and women glisten. Do you feel better now? You were only glistening, you still get a heat rash but you’re only glistening. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. We all glow, perspire and really SWEAT – and ladies don’t escape!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope you are coping ok in that heat Melanie, I’ll command a cool wind to slowly work it’s way towards you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Here in Japan, deodorant is sparsely used. “Women don’t sweat” is a joke amongst the ladies here, always said with a sneer and sideways glance. That line really got my giggle. ๐Ÿ˜€
