If you don't like boy humor, you may want to stop reading.
I've been married to a boy now for almost 8 years. I never had brothers growing up, so I had no idea the fascination they have with flatulence. I should have figured it out eons ago merely because of all the fancy words they have for the proverbial "fart". Tyler has come home with some very interesting descriptions given by the guys at work. My favorite one (to hate) is "drop bass."(thanks Jared)
Needless to say, when we got our Questar Gas bill, and it had the following news, Tyler was almost crying with laughter and I may have chuckled a bit too.
Questar's newsletter had an article: How to identify an outside gas leak
"A pungent 'rotten-egg' odor is your warning that there may be a gas leak. (NO kidding)
But what about other ways of identifying gas leaks?
The following signs may indicate a pipeline leak or failure (that's a nice way to put it.)
- Hissing, roaring or blowing sound (trust me, there are many more sounds than that)
- Dirt being blown into the air (let's hope that's all)
-Fire at or near exposed piping (this only occurs with a blue dart usually. If you don't know what that it, please try to keep your naivety. It is too late for me.)
Continuous bubbling in wet, flooded areas (hopefully only on really bad days)
Anyway, if you have even an iota of immature humor in you, you can see why we were laughing together (at the dinner table no less). This post is mainly for Tyler, but I hope some of you enjoyed it.
