A friend sent me this.  I just had to share because it had me rolling.  But I have to add:  ***Caution*** do not attempt if flaring...
You are on the bus when you suddenly realize ... you need to fart.

The music is really loud, so you time your farts with the beat. After a couple of songs, you start to feel better as you approach your stop.

As you are leaving the bus, people are really staring you down, and that's when you remember: you've been listening to your iPod.

Congrats on getting to remission, Dakota Girl!!!!!! You had a tough time in '08.*********************************Meanwhile, bubba's comment reminds me that THEREAREMIRACLES once described remission as "when you can fart without something else flying out into your pants". That really says it all! / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])
