I was never allowed to say the word "fart" as a kid, so my brother and I had to say "boop".
While my husband and I were still dating, he asked me this, with a completely serious look on his face: "Do girls fart?" I couldn't stop laughing!
I was once told my a elder friend of mine (sure he knew it wasnt true) that in his school, the teacher's chair had a pipe connect from the middle of the chair to the toilet to enable him to fart. He also told me that the students would know, when the teacher attempts to align when he is seated.
I was probably 7 or 8 then, and gave a hard thought to the story, I was half hearted to believe as I didnt see any such thing in my school. But eventually did decide to believe after 3 days of 'deliberation' with myself.
I used to believe that if you smelled a boy's fart, you'd die of a heart attack in exactly 40 seconds. God only knows why....
Back with a was a really little kid, I used to believe that if I fart in my pants, the gas would stay there go back up my butt and cause me to fart over and over. So I used to pull down my pants and underwear whenever I farted. Made for some embarrassing times...
I believed that if you farted and lit a match, there would be an explosion. I tried and it didn't work :(
We had a golden retriever who farted constantly in his sleep. I asked my dad why it was doing that and he said: "It's because his skin is too tight, each time he closes his eyes, his butt hole opes and lets out gas!"
There's really no polite way to say this, but for the longest time, I never knew that boys...well, fart. At home, it was always just me and my mom, and of course it never came up at school.
Then when I was ten, my step-brother came along. He wasn't shy by any means, and he left me astounded, frankly.
Even now, four years later, the idea of both sexes farting still seems so weird, I still can't bring myself to do it in front of him. I always have to trot off to the bathroom, cheeks firmly squeezed....
A friend of mine used to believe that girls' farts somehow smelled "sweet, like flowers." I guess he took the whole "sugar and spice" thing a bit too literally. Long story short, he got me to fart in his face to prove it and was swiftly proven wrong.
The really strange thing? We were 14 at the time.
I was always very close to my grandmother. She was very proper...always a lady. One day out of nowhere she passed gas...I went running into the kitchen, because I couldn't believe what I'd heard, and she looked at me and simply said "Did you see that barking spider?" From that point on I would say that at home to my parents because I believed there truly were barking spiders!
For the longest time, I never thought farting was rude or anything. It's just as natural as breathing; how was I supposed to know doing it in public was socially frowned upon?
At home, my sister and I would fart freely, whenever we felt the need, and my parents (though somewhat more inhibited) weren't especially shy, either. I only learned otherwise after one particularly embarassing incident in grade school. ]_]
my butt was alive cause every time i farted i thought it exhaled
My dad used to call farts 'tundra rats' but I thought he was calling them 'thunder rats'. I only realized that he was calling them 'tundra rats' a few years ago.
I used to believe that if you farted you could blow a hole through the chair.
When I was about six years old, my mother told my little brother, two years younger than me, that girls are "made of sugar and spice and everything nice." This made my little brother think that we girls never did things like pass gas. One day, when we were playing outside, I accidentally let one rip, and he came to the conclusion that I was in fact a boy dressed as a girl. He then referred to me as his big brother for the next three years.
My 5 year old cousin informed me that he gets his hair cut at "Fart Kids", where instead of cutting your hair, they fart it off.
I used to think farts were air you had breathed in and out loads of times and was 'used'
When I was younger, I used to believe if you caught all your farts in a jar and then closed the lid real tight after and then caught a lightning bug in the same jar, that when the lightning bug lit up it would cause the fart gas to blow up.
I once overheard someone saying "Whaddya mean! Girls can't fart!" Umm, well. Anyway. I used to believe that farts were natural bombs.
When I was little, my mom didn't like the word "fart" so she used "smelly windy" in it's place. I didn't even know what a fart was until I was 8!
