The transition is now complete
« on: April 23, 2024, 09:27:38 AM »

Hoping to give you a giggle this morning,  amidst all the struggles of menopause.
I've slowly been turning into my mother, more noticeable since she's no longer here.
Now the transition is complete - a female friend was round the other day and as I walked out of the room to put the kettle on - I farted 😆😆
No idea that it was coming, no control over it. Fortunately we had a good laugh but as  my mother, grandmother and friend herself were/are prone to it, I did wonder if it would ever happen to me!!
Why do our aging bodies do things over which we had no control? What if I do it when I have to have an intimate examination next? Oh deary dear!!

Many years ago I looked in a shop window and saw Mum  :o and she told me that I 'wouldn't see a better person' ......

It's due to laxity of muscles.  Apparently  ::)

Good to know we're all like it - in a way!
We were having a conversation with one of our customers in his garden the other day, he's quite deaf. He let rip in the middle of the conversation but couldn't hear it. Very hard to keep a straight face.
Oh well ladies,  we'll just have to embrace the wind, nothing else we can do!

Love this, I to worry every time I go for a wee as a little fart will inevitably come out at the same time. Me and my kids used to laugh at my Mum and now it’s happening to me. The good old signs of aging gracefully   ;D

Isn't it strange though that a normal bodily function that EVERYONE does,makes us so embarrassed. I say we organise a protest.....March for farts !!  ;D

 I can't help howling with laughter when farting is involved. I don't know what it is! Toilet humour - brilliant  ;D
This isn't menopause related, I know, but......
I remember when I was a girl going out for Xmas Dinner at a pub with my brother, mum and dad. It was a split level set up. We were on the upper level. There was a table right below us. The lady's head was directly below my dad's butt and he farted!😲. The look on her face, followed by my mum's mortification sent me into hysterics  :rofl: What made me worse was that my dad was completely oblivious  ;D

 :o. ..........  bad seating design then !

I had wind many years ago and muttered about it, DH said across the room "Well fart then" [not a word we were allowed to use] - my Mum almost collapsed with laughter and not the usual reprimand.  ;D

Where'er you be
Let it free
For the want of a fart
Was the Death of me

Many years ago when I stayed at my parents, one of the neighbours was in talking to my mum, we were sat on the sofa having our dinner, she was standing right in front of us and yes you have guessed ... she farted, well she didn't even stop talking, we all heard it and couldn't look at each other   ;D

I remember in a previous job when I worked on reception, the disabled toilet was right next to my desk and I could hear everyone and I don't think they realised ... the Managing Director used to regularly use this toilet for a pee & farts but the thing was he would then come out and start chatting to me (he obviously didn't realise I could hear everything) and I had to then continue with the conversation with him with a straight face  ;D

The kids used to say the same about granny and make jokes but erm I am getting to that age myself now and guilty as charged  ;D ;D ;D
