Caught in the Act

I need some advise on a serious subject... I realize this is a personal matter but we're all friends here...

About a year ago I was meeting Mr. Bambi's extended family for the first time. The occasion was a family reunion and this particular night, there was a formal function at a restaurant. Although the food was very good, there was something served that gave me a bad case of gas.

Obviously, I could not sit at the table and attempt to get away with a "one cheek sneak". My other obvious choice, going to the restroom, was foiled when I realized that my future mother-in-law had just entered the restroom. There was no way I was going to sit in the stall next to her and let one "rip".

With pressure building in my abdomen, I clinched my butt cheeks as best as I could. Walking very stiff, as though I had a broom stuck up my ass, I finally made my way to the entrance of the restaurant. Once outside, I took about ten paces and glanced around. Not seeing anyone, I farted like I had never farted before. I swear I could even see the gas bubble travel down the leg of my pantyhose...LOL

With a smile of relief, I turned around to head back into the restaurant. That's when I noticed my future father-in-law leaning against the side of the building smoking a cigarette. The horror! Did he hear me? What would he think of me? Should I say anything to him?

I decided to explain the situation to him. With a crinkled nose and a skeptical look, he listened to me. Were my actions appropriate? What's the protocol for this type of situation?

I hope you didn't walk over to him too soon.
THAT would explain the "crinkled" nose! LOL!

I had a friend that after a good fart, would grab the front of his pants and the back of his pants, and pull them back and forth. It would look like he was wiping himself.
Now, THAT....was hilarious!

Yes i don't think to many mature adults are gonna worry too much about another persons gas passing .. I don't get the big hang up people have with passing gas or burping.. Granted if i'm in a restaurant i would of did the respectful thing like you did, but once i was outside.. Let it rip! <3 Lady B.

Yikes! Hey, it's a natural body function and you made considerable effort to be polite by taking it outside. No explaination needed! You did perfect!

I agree with everyone here. It is a normal body function. Everyone else needs to live with it. And accept it.

Of course, doing it in a public restaurant is a sign of disrespect (I think) and gets you noticed that much faster by many more people. I am glad that you did the respectful thing and took it outside. Let me give you a hug for a job well done.

Your blog friend,

Jon C.

Tho not fully sure, I call out , do you hear me , only sounds of a voice far away, your ways may be to judge what i say and how I feel , In my own world, That has a way in and no way out to enjoy the feeling of being loved is the goal of our hearts , while we leave the outside world not knowing just whats going to take place and where it will lead. Looks are not the way to say whats in ones heart, For it should be a free choice and a great way to say whats on ones mind. I'm a spirit with more love then i can let go , I don't want hate I only want the feeling of knowing I'am not just another trash can waiting by the side to be thrown back to the world I don't belong , Feel and feel deep what i have in my heart not my mind, show me this and love will never die. Not in my lifetime but will share all i can , nothing more see through the hurt and you too will know how to understand and know just whats going on with my heart, and mind.
