The other day my long time elderly, client walked in the door winded and stressed. We sat down chatted for a bit. While she soaked her feet and calmed down with a warm neck wrap. She told me a story about her experience she had early that week. It went some like this… 

“Oh dear, as I get older it’s harder and hard to control my bodily functions! Just the other day I was walking down the aisle at the grocery store. I seen a handsome man walking toward me. He smiled at me and I smiled at him, and then I let out the loudest fart! Well, my god I just left my cart turned around and walked out the store.”

Now I’m laughing so hard I’m crying. I know I’m always in for a treat when this gal comes in. Of course she thinks nothing of it and and just smiles at me. 

Later I enter the massage room after she crawls onto the table. I begin her massage. Opening with some compressions over the blanket. When she lets out the loudest fart and burp!  I step back in stock. She looks up calmly and says. “I warned you.”
