I was confused about farting when I was 13.

Dear Self,

Yesterday I walked past a house where an elderly lady was using her walking frame to get up the front step when she let rip a killer fart.

Farts are really funny.

They are consistently funny

My grandmother once farted in front of me (accidentally). We were both some what surprised. She looked at me and she said…

“That’s just something that happens to old ladies.”

Like she was cautioning me against taking up the habit in company.

I was confused about farting when I was a thirteen. I farted once at gymnastics training as a result of my mistaken belief that holding a fart in would make it go away.

I eventually worked out that this action would just amplify the ultimate impact. (And yes it did have an amplifying effect).

I’m not sure how this lady felt about her mid transit fart but she can rest assured that she made my day.

She reminded me of how unexpectedly funny life is if I let it.
