i have gas…so what.

July 30, 2009

Directly following lunch I sometimes text my husband to give him updates concerning my gastrointestinal issues and he sometimes offers his best non-medically trained advice.  For example:

Me: My tummy feels awful!

Chris: Rub it counter clockwise 3 times.  2 high knees (right knee only) then 7 seconds of humming yankee doodle.  Then blow one kiss to the southwest.  

Chris: Do you feel better?

Me: Well…….no.

Chris: Oh I forgot……..rinse and repeat.

Me: There we go.  That did it.

Chris: You are welcome.

Me: As are you.


I realize this makes little sense to you.  But in all honesty high knees really loosen my stuff up.

    i just have fun imagining you two in separate places with chris just thinking up random crap and you jumping around like a crazy person. it makes me smile.

    NEVER forget to rinse and repeat!

    I would have been lost trying to figure out which way is southwest. But I’m glad you have a man who can help you through these things.

    That is so wierd. Every time I get gas I use that very same system. Except I sing “FEELINGS” really loud. And sometime I forget to blow a kiss to the southwest.

    I wonder if my Mom taught Chris that system… hummmm… Or maybe Debbie… I am not sure it is good that you let out the family secret remedies on this blog.

    Please don’t let the family cure for diarrhea out. It may put the drug companies out of business. Nevertheless if you do, I would like the heads up so I can buy banana futures.
