Silly stuff.

My son and his cousin of the same age went to stay with their older cousin at her dorm for a "family weekend" at Michigan State a couple of weekends ago. We had at least an hour drive home from there, so, having the two teenagers captive (hehe) I worked on prying some bits of their weekend out of them. I was mostly unsuccessful, but I did get this little back and forth which, silly person that I am, I found very amusing.

Apparently, his cousin (the one his age) had some, er...intestinal gas. Okay, he's pretty known for this. Can I say farting? Oop. I just did. Anyway, so apparently his cousin farts. College boyfriend of college cousin remarks on it. My son thought that the word used by the college boyfriend to describe it was hilarious. He just couldn't remember it!

Son: "He said ____'s fart was....beastly, or something like that. No, that wasn't it."

Me: [laughs] "Try to remember!"

Son: "Hmm...epic? No...darn it."

Me: "EPIC!" [laughs]

Son: "That wasn't it! I don't know...efficient?"

Me: [laughing so hard that I can't breathe...boys laughing at me laughing]

His cousin should try lighting farts next-not everybody can do that you know. The heat can be quite intense-perhaps enough to heat a small dorm room. Now that's energy efficiency.

Epic! Even!

My gosh, a blog about farts. You may be on to something here, Darcy.

Darcy said...

Thanks you guys. I hesitated to fartblog, but hey, I've got a teenaged son. It was bound to happen.

I find the teenagers of today delightful, but maybe I'm biased. They make me laugh a ton (genuine belly laughs!) and I consider them way more clever than I was at their age.

Yes, since everyone knows adult females are physically incapable of farting.

Admit it Darcy, there was no cousin, this story was about you!

Darcy said...

LOL, Jason.

Nopes. This is legit! And could never be about me.

Mine don't stink. :)

Nice to see you Windbag!

So nice of you to check up on me, Lem. I caught you over at Althouse, so I know you know I'm okay now. :)
