Stay Single

Dear Husband,

I asked you to please turn on the hot water in the shower for me when you went to the bathroom this morning. I did not ask you to fill the bathroom with your noxious fumes so that I would gag when I walked in there. I am not sure what your intention was there, but I am sure that you did not consider the consequences of your actions. I see a sneak attack Dutch Oven* in your near future.

Love,
Michelle

*Since we have some international readers, I will explain in case this is not a universally-known term. A Dutch Oven is when one person farts in bed and immediately pulls the covers up over the head of the other person in bed, trapping that person in a toasty oven of stench.

I'm not an international reader (yet I am also not married) and I've never heard of this term. I may be horrified.

Interesting. I wonder where I learned it from. Probably from a book.

Did any of you have an older brother? Mine taught me the ways of the disturbed and smelly.

Probably learned it from the classic book "Everyone Poops" or the follow up, "The Gas We Pass: The Story of Farts."

I like doing this to my wife. Thanks for letting me know the proper term. I never heard that before.

BTW, she's good at retaliating, so it's not all one sided. ;)

Note: I have never perpetrated a Dutch Oven on someone.
