When Engineer Dads do the Christmas Party Part 3 Body

You know what’s going to happen. There will be a free bar and the majority of you will maximise this to compensate for what you feel your employer left out of your Christmas bonus, if you got one at all. This over consumption will inevitably lead to you impressing your colleagues on the dance floor.


Some pre-emptive measures will ensure you don’t smell like a chicken farm when you are dragging Deirdre from accounts onto the dancefloor to Uptown Funk.

Firstly, hit the shower. This shower gel from Pecksniffs is my current favourite.

Okay, it’s £30 a bottle but it’s a big bottle and it lasts. When you have dried off you might be inclined to use a body moisturiser. Now, this is not something one could reasonably afford to do everyday. It takes to long to dry. But seeing as you are making a special effort. You want your wife to impress her boss. Your wife can make excellent decisions in choosing a mating partner, you, maybe she needs a promotion where she can make similar great decisions for the company? Smother yourself in Palmers cocoa butter formula. It’s quick drying so not much of an inconvenience and definitely worth it.

Lastly, you need to put a stop to the dreaded sweats. Under arm sweat patches when you are doing YMCA will just fuel the mockery. Especially now that your picture will be on facebook in seconds. I like L’Oréal Men Expert Carbon Protect Deodorant Anti-Perspirant.


The day after the event, hangover or not, take a long hot bath. Use a therapeutic bath oil such as Olverum. It contains 10 pure essential oils, carefully blended to naturally relieve stress. After your performance on the dance floor last night, Olverum is a great way to ease aching or sore muscles. It has a gorgeously aromatic, unisex scent too.
