Make Me Laugh Monday



My eleven year old came home from school Friday and says....

J - "Mom, I got a funny story for you"

Me - "K, lets hear it"

J - "Ya know that fart machine you brought me from Florida when you were on your girls trip?"

Me - "yeah"

J - "I brought it to school and was in the bathroom and when I heard someone walk in I grunted real loud and pressed the 'juicy fart' button. They started laughing and said 'Man....Dude.....are you alright in there"...." I grunted again like I was in pain and said...."Yeah....I'll be all right."

I know that shouldn't make me laugh. It's disgusting. It's childish. But it still makes me laugh. Not the story itself....but my son's extraordinary ability to laugh at himself and his complete lack of self consciousness. I love that he doesn't give a hoot what people think of him and NEVER gets embarrassed.

You actually bought your child a fart machine. You are a brave, BRAVE woman!! I wouldn't dare because I know that would be all I'd hear for days! :)
