Ok, I just found out my two "lovely" boys - 10 and 7 - have been taking bets on my gas production in the bathroom. Mornings are a bit hard for me and it may take several bathroom trips before I expel all the built up gas from the night before.

I literally tripped over them this morning because they did not abandon their door monitoring quick enough. It seems that they bet on the number of seconds for each gas eruption, time them and then the winner gets the other's piece of candy or some other treat. For several weeks, I just thought they were being nice and sharing with each other! Now I find that it has been payback ...

I laughed so hard, I almost had an accident ... of course, now I get their treats for the rest of the week ...
