Awkward!!!


Rule of thumb! When you’re having a conversation with some one (or a group of people) and you suddenly smell someone’s farted – ignore it! Never ever acknowledge it or this could end up being one of the most awkward conversations ever. Last week at work, the exact thing happened to me (And before you ask - No, I did not fart, someone else did...lol).

I would typically ignore this except the smell kept getting stronger and stronger and I just had to stop and say something – though half out of fear that they’d think it was me (don’t ask why! I have no idea…lol). I asked if anyone else could smell it and everyone else said they couldn’t at which point I let out a nervous laugh/shriek (way to go banshee) and said maybe it was all in my mind.

The conversation after that was painful as one of the girls I was talking to thought it could have been the fact that she had been soaked in the rain on her way in and her coat might smell a bit funky (you know – that ‘wet dog’ smell though I knew that was not what I could smell). The conversation just went painful and awkward from then on with me trying to pretend I hadn’t smelt anything in the first place... *cringes* Never again… *shakes head* Never…

Um, yeah, can't say I blame you initially cuz I always want people to know it's not ME! lol Love the photo, too, and nice to visit your blog and see where you "live"! :)

Haha! Yeah, that has to rate right up there with NEVER asking a strange woman when her baby is due. LOL

You have an excellent blog! It's hilarious! I loved the Ally McBeal coffee porn post, too. Thanks for stopping by my blog today so I could find you. :)

I think you'd love one of my friend's blogs. Your sense of humor is wacky like hers: http://thepartypony.blogspot.com/

Nice to meet you!

it is always so awkward!!!!! I always keep mute and pretend not to smell it cos there's a phrase that goes 'who smelled it, dealt it'. i think. lol

Well, hello!

I am always delighted to receive any comment, but particularly one from your part of the world.
How did you find me (If you have an answer please put it on my site as I always forget where I left my questions).

As for "FARTS." I thought that only happened in Disney films, some gross men or with cows (Have you ever heard a cow fart? It is unbelievable. No, wonder they are affecting the atmosphere).

Of course I don't do that. I simply release odorless gas, occasionally. Yeah, right! If you believe that then perhaps you would like to buy some swamp land that I happen to have for sale.

Thanks for visiting an leaving such a nice comment. I try to make sure everything is upbeat and hopefully funny. Usually I write about the nutty stuff that seems to always happen to me. Sometimes I have to force myself to smile and writing about fun things helps makes it easier.

I live in a rural town in the state of Missouri. I also care for my 100 year old diabetic father (with congestive heart failure) 24/7/365 (and have for the last 5 years). This blog is my therapy because I seldom get to leave home, as there is no one else who can (or will) take care of him. .......kt
