Is there such thing as TOO comfortable? I remember when I first started seeing my partner, all the usual tricks and games were played. I kept guard about how many texts I would send, (so as not to look too keen), I made sure I didn’t reply to his messages straight away, (so it looked like I was really busy and interesting), and I was mortified at the thought of ever passing wind in front of him.
A friend asked if we were pee peeing or poo pooing infront of each other yet shortly after we went public with our relationship. We looked horrified, “Oh goodness me, NO!”
Until one day the change happened…
It started off like any other ordinary day, we were sat watching TV like we normally did, then my partner turned to me, he looked different, he had a worried/mischievious look in his eye,
“Babes I’m so sorry, I can’t take it anymore, I really need to let it out, I just have to, I just have to FART!”
“Oh thank god for that” I replied. “Do it!!!”
A wave of relief came over me. I thought well if he’s doing it, then by gum I’m jumping on that band-wagon. No more sneaking off to the bathroom, no more anxious butt clenching, no more holding back quite frankly!!
To say that we’ve embraced the smelly side of each other since then is an understatement. Evenings are quite often spent trying to out do each other with our parps, laughing and grimacing at what we produce. Sometimes when we’ve had an argument we might purposefully let one rip just to really piss the other one off.
I remember my 1st boyfriend saying to me, “You can’t share everything about yourself with someone, you have to keep something back for yourself”. I didn’t agree with him then and I don’t agree with him now. I am terrible at holding anything back from most people actually. I found out I was pregnant at 5 weeks and I managed to keep it a secret for all of about 60 minutes!
Are we too comfortable with each other? Who cares?! I’m glad I’m in an environment where I am free to let my body do as it so pleases. I look forward to my partner coming home from work everyday and the 1st place he goes to is the bathroom. I don’t want to wait another 20 minutes (he holds it in at work) so the bathroom has become the place where we have our debrief of the day.
Now we have a new edition and he is giving us both a run for our money!!!
