Tale Weaver — A New Start

AA6C0F0B-F8C9-43D9-A1D8-93BC714A3775My plan was to go down to Cancun in Mexico, where beautiful young women abound — I’m talking ubiquitous, you know what I mean? — and to carouse around the whole summer. It was going to be grand.

But after just a week in Cancun, I developed a horrible case of flatus. I couldn’t go five minutes without letting go of some really stinky farts. Talk about being mortified. I was totally embarrassed. It doesn’t take much imagination to see how that malady could twist my grand plan around.

I needed to get some advice from a reliable source, so I asked my buddy if he could recommend a good doctor. I needed to get to the bottom of my excessive gas, no pun intended.

So this doc ran a bunch of tests and everything seemed normal. Then he asked me about my diet since I arrived in Cancun. I told him I live mostly on beans and beer. He urged me to cut down on the beans, saying the more beans you eat, the more you fart. Instead, he told me to eat more fish.

Long story short, I took his advice and, within a week of my bean-free diet, my flatus was gone. And now my summer is off to a great new start.

    Beans are wretched, but so tasty! Beer is good too.😊

      I thought beans are the magical fruit, the more you eat, the more you toot. 😉
