Cheetos and dog farts

Yesterday I had a big marketing call with my publisher and there were a lot of people on the conference call including my editor and my agent. I told myself to be cool. I’d kicked Alpha Man upstairs because he has a tendency to forget when I’m on a call and then says inappropriate things because … well, because he’s Alpha Man. Youngest wasn’t home yet. All I had to do was mute the call while chewing my Cheetos. The dogs were sleeping at my feet looking like sweet angels so I let them stay. I was concentrating on following along with the presentation and speaking clearly and muting when I was chewing and … you see where this is going, right?

Frat Boy farted.


And did he do this when someone was talking? No. He did not. He did it during a rare lull.

And to think that I believed my biggest worry was the bag of Cheetos. That is my life, people. Cheetos and dog farts. It’s really very exciting and glamorous…

  1. Sad as this sounds, I would love to have a marketing meeting with someone other than myself. And my 14yo daughter who is my self-appointed Social Media Director. Dog farts and all… But I feel your pain.

  2. LOl: Cheetos or dog farts!! I pick Cheetos.

  3. Always happens at a most inopportune time!

    Hubby use to have a sound on his computer at work when he empty his trash bin like a toilet flushing – it happened while he was on a conference call once.

    Hope you have a great day!

  4. Jill?? How boring would our life be if we didn’t bring excitement and fun with us everywhere we go. People that know us..uhhhhh know to expect the unexpected. You are a bright our day!

  5. LMAO!!! I needed a laugh this morning. It is hard to laugh while I’m still in pain from my dental procedure last week. My grandma cats always give me the silent by deadly facts. Then look at me like I didn’t do it grams.

  6. :yahoo: just another day in paradise!

  7. I feel your pain but gotta thank you for sharing this ‘special’ moment of your day. Started off my day with a smile!

  8. You are the best. I was having a down moment, read this and you made me laugh and smile.

    See, that is just what you do. Thanks.

  9. I am cracking up laughing over here(I am supposed to be working but hey…. you know it’s Thursday!).

    That is so hilarious. If a dog can manage to get back at their person then I swear it’s a conspiracy by them all.

    Mine does that and then my son looks at me and I swear to heaven he thinks it was me but in all honesty it’s our dog!(you have got to work that into a future book) :yahoo: :-P

  10. That’s my Frat Boy! And then I bet the smell was horrendous!

  11. :oops: :lol:

  12. Only you could make a dog fart enjoyable!!!!!

  13. My new motto.

    “LIFE: it’s just Cheetos and dog farts.”

  14. My question is, did Frat Boy look at you like “What? Where did that come from?!” :lol:

  15. I’m so sorry but all I can do is laugh….

  16. My son is often on the phone doing interviews so we have learned to lock up the pup in a bedroom since the pup loves to bark at anything moving outside. I would guess that the people on the phone knew you and weren’t as offended as you might think. Frat Boy and his antics are well known. Love you Jill.

  17. Only you and Dick Tracy! You do live a quietly exciting life!

  18. Life with Frat Boy, but you love him anyway.

  19. LOL!! Typical dog always pick the wrong time to let loose. Gotta love Frat Boy.

  20. :oops: could be worse

  21. Really? Blaming it on the dog? “She who smelt it, dealt it”. Or basically you are using the “TODDI” defense. (The other dude did it)

  22. Love it! Hilarious!

  23. Okay, that is hilarious! Well, for me to read, anyway. But Jill. These folks know you, right? They know your life, right??? So knowing that Frat Boy would [ahem] do such a thing was probably no surprise. Of course, YOU were in smelly hell but… Sorry, gonna go back to laughing now!


  24. At least they didn’t have to smell it, too.

  25. Bwhahahahahahaha….gotta love Frat Boy….keeps it real….

  26. :wacko: There are no words!!!!!!! :grin: However, talented writer that you are, gave us a good laugh this morning. Thanks. :smile:

  27. :lol:

  28. And I’m betting no one believed it was Frat Boy when you “blamed” it on the dog.
    Only thing worse, would have been Alpha coming in the room and commenting “Phew! what did you do?!” ;-) :lol: ;-)

  29. Dogs & boys always pick the MOST INAPROPRIATE times!!! But really, have you ever woken up from a nap by a dog with cat food breath!! That’s foul!!!

  30. I’ve never heard one of my animals fart, but I’ve definitely had to smell it. Ewwww!

    Did anyone on the call comment about it or were they all left wondering who exactly did it?
