Ok I am going to share some more embarrassing stuff, but it gave me such a big smile yesterday that I just have to 😀
As you may have taken away from earlier posts I ride a bicycle very often. Cyclists should know there is something as curtesy rules while on a bike. I think I break a lot of those rules. No, not traffic rules, curtesy rules.
So what do these rules entail? When you think about it they will be very obvious. You never fart when there are people cycling behind you, you don’t listen to music without headphones, you make sure your body odour is under control, that sort of thing. In other words you take into account you are not alone on the road and since you are not in the protective cover of a car, other cyclists might be bothered by some things.
Let’s be honest, you would not like it to be riding your bike behind someone that did not shower for a week (exaggeration, I know, but still, you get the point), while you would not mind staying behind someone that put on some nice perfume of deodorant.
About that music rule… I think it changed through time, because a lot of people (especially the school going type) listen to their music without headphones, so we all can ‘enjoy’ it.
I am not that much better mind. Why? Well I listen to my music with headphones, but the music I listen to are the practice tracks for the choir I sing with. Did you guess why I am not that much better? I think you might even say I am worse, because instead of the music people get my voice to listen to, no music at all, and not the complete song, because other vocal groups are missing. Let’s just say people are happy I do not sing the soprano part.
So yesterday I was on my way home when I started getting cramps. The stomach kind. There are a lot of people on the road (on bicycle), so I have to behave and let the cramp be. At one point it just feels awful, so I decide to let some ‘air’ out. You know, just let it slip out silently, so no one will know, but I will be more comfortable. I lift my but a bit, because as you might know, farting when seated is very difficult, and…… The sound that came out was deafening!
Now there was someone on a bicycle behind me. Not directly behind me, but I figure he had to have heard. And not only he, the people in front of me must have heard as well. The sound of it could have waken the dead!
Now I get red in the face, I feel ashamed, but at the same time I let out a very high pitched shot laugh (hah). Even though I knew it was wrong, I found it funny, because I did not see it coming. Now this is where the title comes to play. In my mind the thing gets a lot funnier, because all of a sudden I think about Mario Cart. I see the cyclist behind me being slowed down by a cloud of gas and I have to be honest, at this point I am laughing in my mind. So funny. Lucky for me it did not come to the point I had to stop along the side of the road because of laughter, but knowing me it easily could have.
I wanted to write this piece when I got home, but other things had to be done first, then I started to waver, is it a thing I want to put online, maybe I’d better not.
This morning I woke up still having the memory of yesterday and wanting to share it. Shortly after my mind created an even better picture. I don’t just slow the other ‘drivers’ down with gas, but I sling out musicals notes to them as well. The Mario Cart picture gets more and more complete in my mind. What the… I will share the story online. Why keep the fun all to myself, right.
I hope you enjoyed it, because I certainly did. You should see the smirk on my face at this point 😀
