So I was out to dinner with my friend and both of our youngest daughters and I relayed her a funny Youngest story when she casually stated that she had read my blog post and so she would probably have to delurk to tell everyone that I had lost the bet. Damn. And yet relief as I now no longer have to hold back. And special thanks to all my Facebook Friends, the low down bums, who were taunting me all week by sending me Poop and Fart buttons for my flair board.
So here is the story that busted me,although I had only told her part of it at the time:
Youngest comes home and says, "Mom, I know how to do a Fart Roll!"
"A what?" I reply.
"FART ROLL! I learneded it at school from Mr. D!"
I'm smiling and shaking my head. "I don't think it is called a Fart Roll."
"Yes it is, just watch. I tumble and land on my butt with a big bounce."
Oldest, who has been listening, interjects in a highly superior way. "That's a forward roll, silly."
"No it isn't! It's called a Fart Roll! Cause when you land on your butt, sometimes it pusheded out a fart! Watch me!" Youngest does a Fart roll and sure enough a little toot sneaks out. Angus is cracking up and insists on trying this with Youngest. Pretty soon, fart rolls abound with and without accompaniment.
"That's enough!" I shout. "Enough with all the farting!"
A particularly loud and disturbing sound fills the air as suddenly Youngest jumps up and races off to the bathroom shouting, "I gotta go POTTY!!!"
"Me too!!!!" Angus squeals as she too races for the other bathroom upstairs.
"Your children are disgusting!" Oldest says as she stalks away.
So if you are ever constipated, try a fart roll. They are apparently very effective.
