If the title of this post disgusts you, then please don’t scroll beyond this point. I will write a better post tomorrow (hopefully)
If you are still here and reading then I hope you don’t leave this space for good after reading this post. It’s so silly but I have almost half an hour left to post for today. So, here goes!!
Me: (Don’t ask me why I started talking on this topic) Mantam, do you know that in English language there is only one word for Fart. But in Konkani we have varieties.
Mantam (in sync):Ewww Mumma, why would you bring this up now?
Me: No seriously, listen! First variety is…
Mantam (By now, they know that they cant stop me. They start laughing out loud)
Me: Ok listen. First variety is called Puski and it is a very dangerous one. Because, Puski doesn’t make any noise, it is the quietest of farts. But the smell that it spreads is deadly and unbearable. The worst part is because there is no sound, it is hard to determine the source
Mantam: (not able to contain their laughter)
Me: Next variety is called Paadu. Paadu is the opposite of Puski. There is no smell but a loud explosion.
Tammu: Mumma, but mine is a combination of Puski and Paadu 🤣🤣 They laugh a lot more again.
Me: ok now u tell which among these two is your favourite?
Mannu: Mumma, who even can have a favourite in types of fart? Ok, why don’t you tell us which is your favourite?
Me: I like the Paadu better as I can bear the sound but I don’t like smelling Puskis
Tammu: Mumma, tell me. If you are given an option of two things to choose from, what would you choose? One is that you are locked up in a room that is filled with the smell of your own fart, second option is that you danced so badly and get yourself insulted in-front of the whole world.
Me: Tammu, I dont mind the former because its my own fart smell 🤣🤣 By this. I remember a saying: Fart and Success have two things in common!!
Mantam (By now, they are fully convinced that they have crazy mum and just can’t stop laughing)
Me: First similarity is that – if it is your own, you won’t mind it and may even enjoy it. Second similarity is that when it is somebody else’s it may be uncomfortable to you.
Mannu: Mumma, I don’t feel uncomfortable when it is somebody else’s. In fact, I feel happy for them (she clearly meant success)
Me (in a playful mood): Tammu, look!! Mannu is saying that she feels happy when someone farts.
Tammu: yes, Im already giving her happiness inside the quilt 🤣🤣🤣
