There's no easy way to say this.

I farted (out loud, accidentally) in class on Tuesday.

And the worst part? I was standing right next to a kid that I am constantly reprimanding for farting in class.

There was a split second of hope that no one heard it, but that didn't last long. The look on "that" student's was PRICELESS. I think I made his day, or year. (It was almost worth the embarrassment.)

An hour later, I hear Shawn say to another student, "Dude--Mrs.4444 let one rip in math class today."

Man, I hope their memories for this event are as short as they are for basic math facts.

P.S. In reading this Wednesday morning, I find it funny that I felt the need to add the word "accidentally" up there, as if that wouldn't be assumed by adults reading my blog. I was going to edit it out, but then I realized that it illustrates the company I keep at school, for whom breaking wind in class is rarely an "accident."


  1. you lost the old comments - I bet they were as funny as the post.
    It's just a natural thing.

  2. As we say in our house, nothing's funnier than a fart!

  3. I read this to my wife and we both laughed out loud. Happy laughs ( vice nervous laughs) are priceless. I know I'll find more as I mine your archives.

    1. Well, if you liked this one, be sure to read (or listen to) Why Kendall Might Wish I Didn't Work at Her Middle School. It's my favorite funny post.

      I should re-post this one; thanks for bringing it to my attention.
