 I seem to recall and old saying about  not messing with your belly button. Something like dont mess with it because if it unscrews your butt will fall off. I am very tempted to try that out. Ive been on antibiotics and Im all gassed up. Very  musical,, and it makes it interesting while sitting in a waiting room full of strangers. I keep wanting to just say to heck with it an let er go.Hey, sorry, it's not my fault I have to wait in there forever.  Instead I go outside and blast the leaves off the hedges. Anyway, if my butt fell off I would probably just fly around the room like a balloon for a while and end up a little wrinkled heap of crap in the corner. Waiting for the gas to pass,, what a life. eyes

Maybe its actually a plug. If you unscrew it, all the gas will come out...
At once! LOL

LOL Sniper !!!

When one of my sons was a teen . . . I overheard him describing to the other sons, how to pass gas in school w/o sound!! Somehow, you sit in a way that separates the cheeks and it acts like a silencer . . . if there happens to be odor . . . its anyone's guess where its coming from. You could practice this at home till you are a pro!! LOL

Blessings!

Hmmmmm, Yes,, they stink for the benefit of those that dont hear them C2. Ill bet I can make a New York Cab smell worse. As for them being silent, no way. I can make them one or two minute burst, I can even burp the alphabet with my butt. I can time them with steps like brrrrip, brrrip, brrrip as I walk down a hall hoping people think my shoes squeak or I am wearing corduroy pants maybe. I can call ducks or even a moose, but I can't do silent right now. It would be like tying to stifle a charging elephants trumpeting. I think on the way home today I even made a bridge open for a boat horn that was not there. I think If I were lighter, I could blast myself off of a chair and bounce off the ceiling. Now for you guys with no belly button, I will bet the docs left,,, a button hole,,, didn't they,,so you may be half way there, or unbuttoned as is. Guess its no use though, if my butt falls off I will drown in the toilet. No butts about it.

Rando, maybe i could have something done so I can pass gas through my ears. No, not a good idea,,,i'd blow my hat off. TBW, for some reason I just cant bring myself to do it in the waiting room , or any where else people are around. I must be shy or something..Imagine that. I am not however above leaving a paint peeler in an empty elevator just as it gets to my floor. Its fun to wait as the other people get on and the doors close behind them, and as it starts to go down , you can hear the fading sounds of gasps and swear words...As C2 says,,,Evil Grin..

It's nice to see some people having a little laugh about gas. I know it's not easy to deal with, but humor is a good way to sluff off the uncomfortable awkard silences beeing broken by wind. LOL:) My mom and I are both sufferers of Crohn's and IBS and there is no shortage of laughter between us for letting one go. I say it's better out than in. I'd rather get rid of the pressure on my bowel than worry about clearing a room. So all the more to ya guys for lightening up the mood :).

Ah, Sniper. Brings to mind my first day on the job in a new PO. It was also the first day for a new flexi-clerk. The poor fellow bent over to pick up a tub of mail and one goodie just ripped out and echoed 'round the office. It was a roller too, not just some quick putt. Poor guy was sooooo embarrassed!!!

Goshes! I never thought about the risk to my belly button when I finally get up the courage to have this second resection!!!!!
