So we are day one down of Problogger and the nerves have been holding out and I have successfully managed to avoid completely humiliating myself. Quite a feat given I am nervous as all hell and I have a belly full of gas that I have been desperately holding in.
I mean seriously what is it with me and conferences and farting? I haven't even been overindulging on mints this time and yet still I find myself with a gut full of gas.
Is it because I am subconsciously inducing it with all the thinking about gas I have been doing?
Could my brain be connected to some part in my gut and they have this devious little communication going on where my subconscious says "Hey guts, don't you think things are going a bit too smoothly for her? How bouts we get a little action going just to stir things up for fun?" And so my guts are all "hell yeah, we're up for that".
OMG I'm so sorry. I just had an imaginary conversation between my brain and my guts.
All this talk of gas - can you see what being away from my boys does to me? I am missing them so much that I am even missing their fart obsession.
Speaking of fart obsession, you know how I said I haven't completely humiliated myself so far? Well that isn't entirely true. In fact it isn't true at all because I did actually have a moment of utter embarrassment this morning when Tessa and I entered a lift full of people.
We were all squished in like sardines and someone made a comment about us all getting to know each other up close and personal.
I of course piped up with something totally moronic "Let's just hope no-one farts whilst we are all in here" to which the response was stone cold silence.
Yeah a deafening silence that felt like it went on for an eternity.
Seconds later I shook my head and said out loud "Yep clearly my fart joke went down well" to which finally there were a few mild giggles. More importantly and thankfully - the elevator Gods felt sorry for me and brought my suffering to an end by arriving at our floor. I made a hasty escape from that lift before I forever became known as the blogger who made a really lame fart joke in an elevator at a Professional blogging event.
Only one more day to get through. Surely I can do this without further humiliating myself.
