Of manners and such

K, after a particularly loud (and unacceptable) belch at the table:

"Mom, sometimes people do things but then afterwards they say what they need to, O.K.?"

At our house, I've taught the kids to rate the quality of their belches, based on range, loudness and smell. Making it fun, they have no problem saying 'excuse me' before handing out a rating. I still win every time.

Well, we do have females in this house and occuring in the van while driving, or while outside, let the games begin, but at my table- completely unacceptable. Now, teaching belching games to other people's children is fun (KD, what say ye?)

I say pay backs are hell. You just wait, I am buying a plane ticket right now.

Let the record show..."I do not think bodily noises should be encouraged!"

That is hilarious ::: laughing ::: not belching... yet ::: just laughing :::

I may be the only one who still remembers the episode of "The Simpsons" where Jay Sherman of "The Critic" was a guest character.

Off-camera in multiple scenes were loud, earth-rending belches credited to Eudora Welty.

Ever since then, she has been my hero.
