    Whoopie, and the fun of flatulence

    One of the grandson's has the end of the year award ceremony this morning. So Grandma and I went and afterwards checked the little guy out of school to spend some memory time together.

    Long about lunch time we let him pick where ever he wanted to go eat as long as it wasn't McDonalds. So he picked a local place that sets next door to a Dollar Tree Store. Not sure if he wanted the location for eating or the Dollar Tree Store, but he managed to score both.

    After eating the next stop was the very limited selection of toys at the Dollar Tree Store. It took him as long to choose a toy as it does me just to window shop the gun counter at Academy Sporting Goods Store. But, when it was all over and his choice was made, I was surprised that he chose a toy that has been around as long as I have.

    Yes, that's right, his first Whoopie Cushion or in this case being from the Dollar Store I think it was called the Poof Pillow or some non trade market infringment name. Really surprised at how many times, how many different pitches, of flatulence we heard the rest of the day. Even more surprised that as hard as he dropped his bottom on the cushion of air never blew out in an explosion of air. He even stomped on that toy with the full weight of his little body all to the sound of passing gas.

    That is one thing about flatulence, if well placed and timed, it most always brings a grin, laugh, or chortle. As for value, I guess it was well worth the $1 it cost to make his day.

    Maybe the next time we can find some of those E-Ray Glasses that I aways found advertised on the back of my comic books.

    HA...the comic book ads remind me of the "Learn to throw your voice" blurb. The drawing of the guy toting a barrel on his back and the voice "bubble" shows..."let me out of here" or something like that. From the novelty shop I had a set of the "Chattering Teeth" that wound up...we had a Shepherd mix dog and I gave those teeth to him...took a photo that I wish I could find from some 55 years ago.

    A child can have so much fun with some of the simplest things, as long as they have a good imagination.

    The theory that a "big bang" from a handgun, along with a perpetrator receiving a gunshot wound, is the best way to end violent personal or property crimes.

    Heh. I still have my first magic trick I ever owned. Its the disappearing ball in the vase trick. Mine is made of wood. They still have them today but they are now plastic. My fake thumb for making silks disappear is in my 'treasure chest' as are my "TV Magic Cards" I got when I was 12. Always fascinated by magic. Still am. It's the kid in me. Farting is also magic in my book. Who doesn't get a chuckle when someone farts? Now go get a match and we'll do an experiment!!

    One of the first things you learn as a parent......the little ones don't seem to have near as much fun with the toy, as they do with the box it came in.
    Ammo will get you through times of no money, better than money will get you through times of no ammo.

    Someone gave me a Fart Machine several years ago. It's battery powered, and has a remote control. I've put it in one of the bathrooms and under living room furniture. Not very often, but it's hilarious when someone comes out of the bathroom and you give them that look. Used it on the granddaughter once and she was so embarrassed, she cried. Bad on me.
