Crappy New Year*

This comes as a result of a conversation with the ultra cool and lovely Wendy (Inside The Wendy House) on Twitter where we were joking about our fondness for a bit of ‘toilet humour’.  Wendy made a joke that we should start a blog hop and what she would call it and a couple of other lovely bloggers (Super Amazing Mum and Ghost Writer Mummy) joined in with some funny stories.  So, that was the birth of 'Toilet Tuesday'.

Inside The Wendy House

Join in the childish Toilet Tuesday (yes I know it's Monday still!) fun now on Wendys blog.

I think most people enjoy a bit of toilet humour (even if they don’t openly admit it), giggling like school children when someone ‘lets one go’ by accident.  When I was growing up one of my favourite programmes was The Young Ones, much to my mothers disgust, then as I got older I loved Bottom.  Says it all really.  

It’s surprising then to learn that was actually in a relationship for almost 7 years with a man who hated flatulence.  In those 7 years I actually only broke wind in front of him twice.   I still, to this day, wonder how I managed to get through all that time without breaking wind in his company.  It’s a wonder I didn’t become a victim of spontaneous human combustion!

The last time I did float an air biscuit in front of him I remember so vividly.  We were walking back home hand in hand in the early hours of the morning on New Years day after enjoying a party at a friend’s house when it started snowing.  There weren’t many people about as it was about 4am – yes, there once was a time when I could arrive home with the milkman – it was so beautiful.   Almost picture perfect, like something from a movie.  He stopped me and pulled me in close and told me how much he loved me.  Perfect I hear you say.  Well, it would have been if, when he kissed me and cuddled me, I hadn’t expelled a loud gassy noise from my derrière.  He dropped me like a hot brick and called me disgusting.  Of course this just made me laugh and the more indignant he got about it, the harder I laughed (and the amount of cider and vodka I’d consumed didn’t help).  We walked home the rest of the way in complete silence.  Happy...or should I say Crappy New Year!

* I would just like it noted that I only farted, I did not crap myself but 'crappy' was the best idea I had for a post title at the time of posting :-)

I'm actually literally "laughing out loud"!! hehe I love that story...and the disclaimer about not crapping yourself is hilarious! Thank you for linking and for your help and patience too! *Still chuckling to self*

Tina said...

ROFL, my daughter just asked me why I was laughing. I interrupted her cartoon. Very funny, and yes...I can't believe you did no bloat in pain during that relationship!!!

Hannah said...

Hehe brilliant. I'm lucky. I have a hubby who thinks farting is hilarious. Good job really...

Love it!

Can I go out on a limb and guess you are English?

SAHMlovingit said...

Glad you enjoyed ladies.

Hannah - my husband says that I certainly make up for 7 years of holding it in now!

Mid30s - Haha! Why, do Aussies not break wind? Yes was born in Chester, England but have lived literally 2 miles over the border into Wales all my life so I could play football for either ;)

SAHMlovingit said...

Oh and Wendy I so had to add the disclaimer...didn't want people thinking I'd followed through now did I!?

This Mid 30s Life said...

Funny! While toilet humour is universal, I don't think anyone loves it quite like the English. Maybe the British in general but I don't know.

Nothing like a good fart gag is there!

Trish@Show and Tell said...

Oh, believe me, the Aussies love it too!!! My 8yo daughter (yes daughter) makes non-start fart jokes all day. It's a source of great hilarity in our house.

Great new idea ladies!

PS. Heather, just wanted to say thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. When you return (which I hope you will!!) I just wanted to let you know that I didn't delete your comment!! I just had a serious crisis of newbie blogger confidence yesterday and pulled my post down (and your comment with it) before fiddling with my post a bit more then reposting.

Oh, the joys of being a newbie!
