Default shock and awe

WARNING : ONLY Read This, Once You Are Able To 'LAUGH OUT LOUD'.
Hysterics might set in. The writer of this piece paints a very vivid picture...
You will laugh - guaranteed! ENJOY!!

I went to the 'Home Depot' hardware store recently while not being altogether sure that course of action was a wise one.

You see, the previous evening I had prepared and consumed a massive quantity of my patented 'you are definitely going to s**t yourself' road-kill chilli.

Tasty stuff, albeit hot to the point of being painful, which comes with a written guarantee from me that if you eat it, the next day both of your arse cheeks WILL fall off.


Here is what happened. I had awakened that morning, and even after two cups of coffee (and all of you know what I mean) nothing happened.

No 'Watson's Movement 2'. Despite habanera peppers swimming their way through my intestinal tract, I was unable to create the usual morning symphony referred to by my dear wife as 'thunder and lightning'.


Knowing that a time of reckoning HAD to come, yet not sure of just when, I bravely set off for the Home Depot store, my quest being paint and supplies to refinish the home office. Upon entering the store at first all seemed normal. I selected a cart and began pushing it about dropping items in for purchase. It was not until I was at the opposite end of the store from the restrooms that the pain hit me.


Oh, do not look at me like you do not know what I am talking about. I am referring to that ' Uh.., Oh.., S**t !, gotta go..' pain that always seems to hit us at the wrong time..

The thing is, this pain was different.

The habaneras in the chilli from the night before were staging a revolt.


In a mad rush for freedom they bullied their way through the small intestines, forcing their way into the large intestines, and before I could take one step in the direction of the restrooms which would bring sweet relief, it happened. The peppers fired a warning shot.


There I stood, alone in the paint and stain section, suddenly enveloped in a noxious cloud the likes of which has never before been recorded. I was afraid to move for fear that more of this vile odor might escape me.


Slowly, oh so slowly, the pressure seemed to leave the lower part of my body, and I began to move up the aisle and out of it, just as a red aproned clerk turned the corner and asked if I needed any help.


I do not know what made me do it, but I stopped to see what his reaction would be to the malodorous effluvium that refused to dissipate... Have you ever been torn in two different directions emotionally? Here is what I mean, and I am sure some of you at least will be able to relate.


I could have warned that poor clerk, but I did not. I simply watched as he walked into an invisible, and apparently indestructible, wall of odor so terrible that all he could do before gathering his senses and running, was to stand there blinking and waving his arms about his head as though trying to ward off angry bees.

This, of course, made me feel terrible, but then made me laugh. .......BIG mistake!!!!!


Here is the thing. When you laugh, it is hard to keep things 'clamped down', if you know what I mean. With each new guffaw an explosive issue burst forth from my nether region. Some were so loud and echoing that I was later told a few folks in other aisles had ducked, fearing that someone was robbing the store and firing off a shotgun.


Suddenly things were no longer funny. 'It' was coming, and I raced off through the store towards the restrooms, laying down a cloud the whole way, praying that I would make it before the grand mal assplosion took place.


Luck was on my side. Just in the nick of time I got to the john, began the inevitable 'Oh my God', floating above the toilet seat because my ass is burning SO BAD, purging. One poor fellow walked in while I was in the middle of what is the true meaning of 'Shock and Awe'. He made a gagging sound, and disgustedly said, " Son-of-a-bitch ! ", "Did it smell that bad when you ate it?", and then quickly left.


Once finished and I left the restroom, reacquired my partially filled cart intending to carry on with my shopping when a store employee approached me and said, "Sir, you might want to step outside for a few minutes."

"It appears some prankster set off a stink bomb in the store. The manager is going to run the vent fans on high for a minute or two which ought to take care of the problem."


My smirking of course set me off again, causing residual gases to escape me. The employee took one sniff, jumped back pulling his shirt up to cover his nose and, pointing at me in an accusing manner shouted, "IT IS YOU ! ", then ran off returning moments later with the manager. I was unceremoniously escorted from the premises and asked none too kindly not to return


Home again without my supplies, I realized that there was nothing to eat but leftover chilli, so I consumed two more bowls.

The next day I went to shop at Walmart.

I can't say anymore about that, because we are in court over the whole matter.

The B#stards claim they are going to have to repaint the store.


SP :hello:

Very appropriately titled, cleverly written story! My compliments to the author and sympathy to the clerks at Home Depot and Walmart. Thanks for the mid day chuckle and relief (pun intended)!
