Why Old People Fart in Public: Mystery Solved!

I am so very lucky! Not only do I have wonderful parents, but I was also blessed with two wonderful older sisters. There is nothing like a chat with your sisters to lift your spirits or to keep you giggling for a week.

On my last visit to my hometown, my sister, niece, and I piled into the car to grab lunch. We went to Shady Lane to pick up my favorite chili dogs in the whole world. Shady Lane is a little drive thru in Tifton that has been there since the beginning of time. The food is cheap, the place looks a little dirty (but it's not, it always gets an excellent score from the health inspector), and it has the best chili dogs east of the Mississippi. I give it 2 thumbs up and the fat girl seal of approval!

Back to my story (sorry I get a little off subject, I blame it on adult ADD)-While waiting at the drive thru for our chili dogs, my niece was up-dating me on school. She was telling me how there was a group of girls that were not very nice to her. I was explaining how we have all been in that situation, and that she shouldn't worry about them. She should just hang out with her friends. At that moment my sister chimed in with her words of wisdom. "Don't worry about what those girls say," she advised. "The older you get the more you really don't care what other people think about you, that's why old people fart in public."

I thought her advice couldn't have been more perfect. I also thought it couldn't have been funnier! My niece, sister, and I all had a good giggle while waiting for lunch, but more than a week later I am still giggling! Now I know why old people fart in public! The mystery has been solved!
