Gestures, signs, and use of space are also important in nonverbal communication.

Danny's Reading: Deodorant

Average: 4.5 (12 votes)

This is an article about deodorant.

Which is, apparently, not really a deodorant, but a 'Skin Comfort System Anti-Perspirant Body Spray, with Chamomile Extract and Avocado Oil'. In other words, it's a deodorant which costs three times as much as any other deodorant purely because it has a cooler sounding name.
