Conversely, it's frustrating when they ask questions you don't know the answer to!

I like the passing gas one. I still like to do that in the super market, then look at someone or make eye contact, turn up my nose and walk away. Giving them the impression or anyone else smelling my fart that they did it.

The horse does the work and the coachman is tipped. My favorite. I have to remember that one and I had never heard it before.

Abe~~My children use to like to do that to me. They would go so far as to say: "MOMMY!" I think the fart thing is a man's and children thing.

Oh well, my favorite is the "horse does the work and the coachman gets the tip." That can apply in other areas of life as well.

Patty, I hope you too have a warm, relaxing week-end free of farts! ;)

Gramma Ann, that's the only thing nice about not being able to smell. This morning when our daughter left for work, she sniffed when she went out the front door and said it smells like pig manure out here, I said, I don't smell anything. We live close enough to farms for the smell to travel and I use to be able to smell it, no longer, which is good, since I can change a babies diaper and not smell a thing. LOL

Yes, I think it is a man and children's thing, but then MOST men act like children. LOL

I think Abe is very crafty! (And you'll find a certain four-letter word hidden in that!)

Yeah, passing gas will always get people's attention. LOL.

Have a good night, Patty!
