Ack...the irony!

I've already mentioned this before, but I exercise at Curves. This morning an elderly lady came in and started exercising right next to me. She's a very nice lady who is in her 80's or so. I was focusing on my workout when I caught a whiff of something nasty. Sweet little old lady had just eked out a message from within. Now I know it's normal and all for that to happen, but what struck me as funny was her T-shirt. The back of it said "Lifeguard" and had the red cross on it, which I thought was unusual for an 80-year-old woman. Then, on the horizontal part of the cross, it read "AROMA."

Oh wow. I almost hope she bought it in happy jest of her own...uhm...troubles??

What a funny, funny moment!

Actually, it was some sort of computer support company T-shirt, but I found it perfect for the situation. And thanks for the link!

I love just love irony. And aromatic irony is almost as good as poetic irony.

Literally embracing the term, 'Old Fart'. Beautiful.

guy has this whoopie cushion widget that you click on and it farts. 4 different kinds. It's pretty sad that both of us giggle like 5th graders with every click.

You need to take a whoopee cushion to curves next April 1 and stick it under one of the seats on the machines. Or maybe sooner.

Old fart, my eye. That was a fresh one! ;-)

Speaking as one who lives with an ancient aromatic poet, I say this is too too funny!

Say, maybe you could ask the lady where she got her shirt. I just had a vision--this could be the next viral for the subset of bloggerettes who have their grandmothers living at home with them!
