I was in the pub yesterday when I suddenly realized I desperately needed to fart. The music was really, really loud, so I timed my farts with the beat.
After a couple of songs, I started to feel better. I finished my pint and noticed that everybody was staring at me.
Then I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my iPod.
Lyon, nobody could make that joke up - it had to have really happened to someone. I was laughing so hard I had to lay down on the floor and my kids, who are iPod addicts, got a kick out of it.
There's something to learn for everyone from a news story I heard this morning on the radio. A guy in the stall of a public restroom was taking too long, others were banging on the door with no response and decided to call 911 to summon the police. The police pepper sprayed and tazered the guy taking too long in the stall. Turned out the poor guy was deaf. What a lawsuit. Maybe he should have sang or hummed?
To Robbie, the original poster, my digestive system has slowed down but so far not too much trouble with constipation. I ate a half a peach yesterday and might as well have eaten a huge meal so my eating style has evolved into grazing. I can't stand feeling stuffed, it takes forever for that feeling to go away, like I can't breathe, gave up all soda which is like swallowing air, and lost 40 pounds over about a year. I'd rather be overweight and without MS. Constipation is a double whammy for me - the discomfort of being bound up plus aggravation of hemorrhoids from having borne six children. To avoid feeling full I don't drink enough water. At least I get a choice in which discomfort I prefer - drink water and feel stuffed but not constipated or discomfort of constipation and hemorrhoids but not "stuffed."
