mid night awakenings

I crashed into bed early last night. If you have read my last couple of posts that were the tip of my weeklong iceberg and I needed sleep-BAAD! In my sound sleep I heard a sound that needed my attention..no not the new puppy who is a dream puppy and sleeps quietly all night-no, this sound was more of a sobbing. When I woke up enough I realized it was my husband beside me in bed and the sobbing sound I heard was actually him laughing hysterically into his pillow. He was laughing so hard that he couldn't even tell me why he was laughing. The room was dark, TV off and as far as I could see there was nothing funny anywhere. Well, between gasps for air, he told me that he had just had the loudest longest deepest fart he has ever had. WHAT? You woke me up at 2:30 am to tell me about a fart? Apparently his Chipotle earlier in the evening was coming back to haunt him. Do you know what had him so hysterical??? Just when he was praising himself on the depth and resonance of his bowel sounds he heard our sons bedroom door shut..the son that is afraid of things that go bump in the night. He was hysterical because his fart was so horrendous it scared his kid. Did I mention that there was NO alcohol involved??!! This is just a man that easily amused and oddly enough it is one of the things I love about him. I am not sure what that says about me.

Oh good lord - all men are so alike! My husband laughs hysterically when he farts - you'd think he had just invented something brand new.

I'll admit that bodily function noises can be amusing... but not at 2:30 in the morning! hehehe

Good GRIEF. Now THAT is a story...

I am one of those people who thinks farts are really funny.

But at 2:30 in the morning? Not sure about that.

I'll tell you what it says... it says you've lost your sense of smell but have definitely retained your sense of humor! *giggles* Lemme tell you a secret.. my dad used to let them go SO loudly, that three rooms away, it would wake ME up! As a family, we laugh about it to this day. I hear ya sister! Heck, I hear your hubby too!
