It was a gorgeous day, too gorgeous to experience in the confines of a car. I rolled the window down part way…and then rethought my decision after immediately experiencing the wind and the noise that resulted. Defeated, I rolled the window back up…and learned something new.
Fairy GodBoyfriend: Did you fart?
Princess: Excuse me?
FGB: Did you fart?
Princess: No. Why?
FGB: You rolled the window down and back up again. That’s what guys do when they fart in a car.
Princess: (explodes into laughter)
You know, I’ve seen people roll car windows up and down my whole life, and it has never occurred to me that there was a common cause. What an innocent little princess I am. I’m not sure I ever gave much thought as to a cause at all. Now, every time someone rolls down a window, I’m going to be suspect.
I do love these little epiphanies.
