This is a story about 12 years in the making. I only bring it up now because the other night I ran into Old Man Mr. McFarty and Hayden could not believe it when I told her the whole thing.
About 12 years ago when Hayden was in preschool I went to pick her up one day. As I pulled up there was a man on his cell phone on the sidewalk. As I walk behind him he lets out this high pitched fart. As he is in mid fart he turns to see I am behind him.
He turns back around quickly and walks in the opposite direction. He never issued an apology or anything he just kept talking on his phone. Until that day I have never seen this man before in my life.
Fast forward a few months I see him in a store he looks me dead in the face turns red and goes the other direction. I can not tell you how many times I have ran into this man since this has happened. At the grocery store, restaurants, even the doctors office once. I do not live in the smallest of towns and there are people I have not ran into for years at a time. But Old Man Mr. Mcfarty has been consistent for the past 12 years. I am sure when he decided to play the butt trumpet that day he never knew it would haunt him this long. And every time he gets the same surprised look like "not her again" and hurries off. Lucky for him he was coming out of the store as we pulled up and I said to Hayden "Oh My God it is old Man Mr McFarty" which led to me telling her the story and her having a fit of laughter.
