Is this really necessary???

My dear husband has been giving out some pretty gross burps today. Yes, you heard me correctly. *sigh* *feeble grin* Okay, I'll take part of the blame.....I made some delicious chili, ok? Now, me? I am not a "burper". For one thing, we were taught as children to burp modestly. You know the drill: Cover your mouth, turn your head and do it quietly. Apparently, Ed had a different upbringing. LOL I really don't mind his burping but I did tell him that he could at least say "excuse me" and that it is not very conducive to kissing. Yuck! LOL Oh Well! I love the guy....burps and all. But all of this talking about burping brings back a memory: Several Christmases ago, I was sooooo sick that I could not go to Ed's family gathering, so he and Daniel went. Well, in the process of their going or coming, Ed taught Daniel how to burp his uncle Robert's name! LOL ANDDDDD he taught him how to burp the alphabet! Now, I ask you: Was this something he needed to know to get through life??? *smile* I think not. But it HAS been somewhat entertaining over the years. I can't think of the title right now, but there is a song that I used to sing....a church song.....and Daniel burped the rythym to it. LOL I know, I know.....you all are really wondering about us now, aren't you???? *grin* I'll have to ask Daniel what the song was. Gosh but it was soooooo funny! The boy is a one-man entertainment center, let met tell you! Oh, but even before Ed taught Daniel how to burp the alphabet, my nephew Troy taught Daniel how to swallow air and burp, so I guess you could say that is where Daniel really got his start in burping, as if it is something to be proud of! LOL But what memories we have!!!

Oh alright...if you insist. *grin* It's a guy thing, isn't it???? *grin* I told Ed what you commented and he said...."That's my guy!" LOL

My husband, Ross, thinks it is wonderful to "burp words". David Riley laughs every time he hears Papa burp "rabbits". It must be a guy thing!**big grin**

Yes, I agree, Theresa, it is definitely a "guy thing". Although some of the young ladies in our youth group could seriously give some of these guys a run for their money in the burping department! Go figure. BUT...I've yet to see women do this sort of thing.
