NOTE TO SELF: Do not eat beans on days you workout at the gym!

Definitely TMI, but oh well. LOL...So I had a little beans in my lunch. Big mistake. I wasn't really able to *focus* to well in my class today because of the other *issues* on my mind. Man...I'm just glad I didn't turn into "that girl that farted in class".

How about being in a big grocery store and really NEEDING to let one fly, but knowing that they are the big stinky farts! (especially when you don't know if someone will be coming down that aisle after you!)

A much needed giggle this morning...

I can SO feel your pain... I was "that girl" - in a yoga class. It was so quiet & serene, it just seemed to echo. Even better... one of the girls near me started giggling... it took a while before I went back to that class!

I guess it's a small price to pay to have enough fiber in your diet!

I usually don't have this problem, but my 8-year-old son does. However, it might as well be me because when we are out, he lets one go right beside me and then disappers. So when that hunk comes up behind be in line - yep - I'm the only one there. And his are the kind that really stick around!!! :<)

What a funny thread. My 16 year old son laughs everytime he lets out a "cutz" (whether or not he is by himself or with others). He says it's God's joke to humans (a gift if you will) gives people something to smile and laugh about.

Star - that's just like my husband - he calls them "cut and runs" and does that when we're places. It's mortifying when he does it, but funny all the same.

I save beans for nights when I'm home alone. Some people like Beano but there may be a potential allergy so I've avoided it. Too much garlic and onions can also wreak havoc on your GI tract.

We are a family that consumes a great deal of broccoli, beans, cheese, and any number of gaseous delights.

I burn inscense daily.

haha! why are farts so funny? you know, I have experienced first-hand the gastric powers of garlic. I think that if you eat something that is already prone to cause gas, eating that food WITH garlic, raw garlic, can cause you to not want to be in the same room with yourself.. wow! incredible.

Farts are normal and natural, they just smell horrid. I personally don't hesitate to let them go in supermarkets, and I don't really care who smells them.

The best part about all of this is that nobody knows who i am here... or I'd never write this!! hehe. We are a society that can't admit readily to our fart habits.
