Silent but wetly

One may pass gas anywhere, I suppose, but one of the worst places to let one go, apparently, is in the shower. Now why is that? It’s not like water contains magical properties that make flatulence more potent, right?

    Yeah, but it’s like crying in the shower: for most of us, we’re the only ones in there at the time, so no one is going to know we did it.

    Conceded. (Whether you do it with someone in there with you is a pretty accurate gauge to how well the relationship is going.)

    I just assumed the same mechanism that creates the “rain smell” — that moisture in the air distributes and amplifies the smells of various plant oils that, in dry air, we don’t notice. We say it smells like rain because that’s when we notice the small.

    Well, in the shower it smells like, um, teen spirit?

    “how well the relationship is going”
    “it WAS going rather well, until…”

    I have been told that it’s a milepost in a relationship when you are comfortable passing gas in front of someone.

    None of my dating relationships have got to that point for me. Combination of me being extra prissy about bodily functions and also my not having any very long-term relationships.
