The risk of fart identification

Took my daughter to the orthdontist today. While she was having her braces adjusted, the son and I hung in the waiting area. The boy is 4, and still trying to fully grasp this whole toilet thing.

As he was playing with some plastic letters, I smelled gas.

“Emmett …” I said.

“What, Dad?”

More gas.

“Emmett … do you have to go pottie?”

“No,” he said.

“Emmett, I smell gas.”


It’s times like these when you remember that other people are around, and your son is not the only one who farts.

  1. Need the fart version of that chemical that people put in their pools to ensure that in-the-pool pee-ers are identified for everyone to see.
