I have a nasty habit of answering trivia questions way too quickly, and being so completely sure I'm right that I hardly wait to fact check myself. The other night during bible study time with Ryan, we stopped for a question of his...
"What was that word for when people used to whip themselves as an act of humility and worship? I can't remember..."
(silence and a smirk from Ryan)
"I don't think that's quite it, hunny"
"No, really, it was called 'flatulation'" (I say with a perfectly straight face and no inkling of what just came out of my mouth... happens all too often, unfortunately)
As Ryan begins to giggle... I realize my error and correct myself...
"Flagellation... I meant flagellation!"
"Oh good, I was beginning to worry that people were worshipping by letting it rip over and over... 'I love God!...toot toot!'"
It's nice that we can still have a good giggle over something as simple as fart-humor... that's what really cements our marriage together ;)
