The Fart that (almost) Altered my Destiny
You have to admit you've been in an embarrassing fart situation too. I know I have...
Before I met Jeff I was hanging out with this guy that I liked (cute! funny! and he smelled good usually!*) a few times a month. I had been eating a lot of veggies - broccoli mostly - and most of them were roasted. Roasted in olive oil and garlic.
I looked great! I was wearing my black dress, cute shoes, my pink jacket, good hair. I was feeling really good about myself! But then I was farting the entire drive to Madison! Before I got to his place I pulled over and put the windows down to try to get rid of some of the smell. Did I mention it was February? In Wisconsin? So I couldn't sit there very long with the windows down. I was late and it was cold!
We took my car about 6 blocks away to the restaurant, and I know he smelled how bad the car smelled, but he didn't mention it. I was so embarrassed.
And you know one of the ways that I knew Jeff was the one? When that first fart leaked out in front of him, he wasn't grossed out and I wasn't embarrassed. And he just farted on my foot 10 minutes ago. We've been together 3+ years and married for 13 months. I love that man, and the fact that I don't have to hide my farts...
*I should have known that guy wasn't the one. I always thought to myself "I wonder if he likes me? What does he think of that? Should I do xyz differently?" After I met Jeff and was able to be completely myself with him, I knew it was right, he was right, he was the one. Don't change yourself for someone else. Find the one you can be yourself with.
