A Mighty Wind...

"Let he who is without fart, cast the first stone."

---

So while watching Dancing with the Stars tonight with Didier, and enjoying some PFK (or KFC, or greasy fried chicken, call it what you will it was damned good!) suddenly our fire alarm (with our security system) went off, scaring the be-jezuz out of both of us...

We turned off the alarm, and looked around. Checked all the rooms, checked the main stair-well, the back balcony, you name it. We could find no reason for the fire detector to have tripped. Then the alarm company called. They asked the general questions, were we ok? was there a fire? and so on... They tried to reason why the alarm tripped, and none could be found.

And then an accusatory finger come unto me from Didier... he said, "your fart must have set off the alarm"

Somewhat reluctantly I had to acquiesce.

Not 5 mins before the alarm went off I was in the hallway near the detector and dropped a couple dusters. And seeing as there was no other activity near the detector, we had not cooked anything this evening, we do not smoke... there just was no other plausible cause...

I'm half embarrassed, and half proud! I mean on the one hand, how cool is that?! My farts were powerful enough to trip a fire detector. On the other, gross!
You be the judge... just don't piss me off cause I'll fart in your general direction.

Girls fart? nahhh... I will hear none of this! Got my fingers in my ears yelling "lalalalalalala" - and maybe my fingers on my nose too, just in case ;)

From the past post on MA's blog... I'd be sealing the nostrils shut!

I don't know whether to laugh or go "oooooooooo" either way if your fart tripped the fire alarm thats one mother freakin' potent fart!

As for KFC I don't really like it, its been years since I had any - at my old age of 3? I need to keep my cholesteral (sp?) level in tact!

For the record... no paint peeled off the walls, nor were there red burning eyes, and no one was gasping for breath.

... I guess mine just have staying power, and like all hot air... rise...
