Have you ever let out a ripper that cleared the whole room? You know, one of those eye-watering, rhythm-making pieces of art that disgusts all those around you?
I totally have and it’s quite satisfying in a strange, sick kind of way.
Watching others (hopefully people you know) pinch their noses, gag and flee the premises is actually quite hilarious.
In fact, some of my hardest laughs have resulted from this disgusting gesture…..most of the laughs were directed at the “victims,” but inwardly, I’m really laughing at myself.
It’s important to laugh at ourselves sometimes isn’t it? Farting’s a pretty disgusting example, but I hope you get the point.
We’re all a little odd. We all have our own quirks and nerdy attributes. That’s what makes us different and interesting.
So often, we take life’s simplicities and brilliant moments and cover them with the black tar of seriousness and perfectionism.
I understand that there’s a time and place to be responsible, that’s just part of being an adult. It’s finding those silly moments in between those responsibilities that’s important. It adds flavor, lowers blood pressure and exercises our ability to be free….if only for a moment. So be a dork dang it! You won’t regret it!
I know this post may come across as stupid, gross and immature….I’ll agree, it kind of is :). My hope is that you at least grinned a little. C’mon, you know you did.
