In a first grade class at a local elementary today for work and the kids were playing a game of Heads Up Seven Up, and one of the three kids standing at the front of the class, the only boy, tooted a little.
The girl to his left glanced at him, and his smirk confirmed where the noise had come from. A small wave of giggles went through the classroom, including from the perpetrator, me and the teacher, but then the kids were quickly onto the game.
After leaving the school, I thought about the incident and how much difference a few years can make. Fart in front of class in the first grade, get some giggles. Do the same thing in seventh grade and be known as the "Fartster" until graduation.
