My grandmother use to tell my sisters and I that it was really unladylike to say the word fart. Before I go any further let me explain to those people that don’t recognize the word fart. The dictionary defines fart as expelling gas from your butt. Now since you have read the first paragraph, I will understand if you keep strolling pass this post.
Back to my lovely grandmother, when we were kids if someone had to pass gas, they would usually announce it by saying they got to fart. See in my dear old grandmother house that was the ultimate no, no. As young ladies that she was helping to mold into beautiful young women that word was not allowed. She required that we substitute that word with frizzle. The dictionary define frizzle as making a sizzling or sputtering noise. Therefore throughout this post I will only use the word frizzle. Even though there are numerous words for farting, such as pooting, passing gas,
When you are preparing for the gastric bypass surgery one has to attend several classes to prepare for what will happen to your body after it has been alter. One of the things that they discussed was excessive flatulence (frizzling) that you will have to endure. However I thought I wouldn’t have that problem. WRONG!! I frizzle so much that I can clear my house and at night I really pass major gas. It is like my body relaxes and my intestine stretch out and push out a lot of gas which comes out sounding like Daffy Duck. It has gotten so bad that my husband refuses to sleep under the same cover at night with me.
I also had this one instance at work…….See what happen was… I frizzled one day at work in my own private office and the smell would not leave. So I get up and open a window to help push it out. Instead the wind pushes it out of my office and into the common area where all the clerical people work and mingle. All I could hear was people hollering and asking what is that smell. One lady said “OMG, something done die, call the maintenance man.” Another was saying “The sewer has backed up somewhere.” Then they see me standing by my office door with the air fresher in my hand and one of the ladies say “Tracy I know that wasn’t you, OMG, please don’t do that again.”
Now most people are probably wondering why I am blogging about frizzling. Well because I want other individuals that are going to travel or traveling down this same road to see what other people are adjusting to and going through. This is a major life change with major life changes. I will continue to blog about my experiences and things that my body is going through because I want to keep you informed.
Love, Peace and Happiness
