next time you see that neighbor, just belch out a nice boisterous HEEE-LLLLL-OOOO!!!


I love belching "rrrrrrr-iiiiii-bb-iiiiiii-ttt". My kids think it's funny!

Speaking of kids and belching, if you watch Nickelodeon, you're sure to see the Kid Choice Award commercial with Justin Timberlake belching the entire intro...hilarious!

One is that my office is on the third-floor of our townhouse and it's down right sweltering in there at times. I don't want to wake my wife by sneaking into the bedroom to grab a pair of sleep pants so instead I'll just take off my pants in the office. Worse is I'll often go downstairs to grab a drink and decide down there that it's too hot and ditch the pants over the back of the couch or on kitchen table. Of course it becomes real fun when I forget to collect them and company comes over to find my pants in odd places.

Hi Nick,

I work at home too ... as does my wife ... but fortunately our offices are at either end of the house. I've tried to explain to her why I do the things I do, but to no avail.

When you sneeze, try saying "Mass-A-CHU-setts!" at the same time.

My friend Chris could speak whole sentences while he belched, it was something to witness.

What gets ms is when my office door is closed and I break wind. Sure, the initial stench may be mind numbing, but I forget about it shortly thereafter. Then my wife walks into my office. Her usual reaction is to declare that I am foul.

Good times!

I don't work from home, but if I'm the last person at work I occasionally dance around a bit when a good song comes on.

And I've actually admitted it on my blog too, even if I did bury it in a large entry ;)

Talking for myself. I just did that when I was working at my cutomer office.
I had a headset and was listening to a Prince album when I suddenly caught myself speaking. I slowly moved my head around to see if there where people around me, and yes they where :)

Two other words to try whilst belching:

* Archbishop
* Rubber boots

Rubber boots is my fave :)

My kids would laugh themselves senseless if I said "rubber boots" :)

My worst "lone worker" habit is not cleaning up my desk because I've convinced myself that this allows me to concentrate on getting things done. Sometimes I'll go for three months without moving or tidying anything on the desk -- I'm at the end of a phase like that now (I did a big cleanup on New Year's Day) and I'm soon going to have to do something about it. I keep having to move things very carefully (to avoid landslides) when I want to move my mouse...

Not really an "alone" thing, but when I sneeze the last part usually has a "HUSH!!" sound to it so I've added "THE BABY!!" at basically a scream. I don't really know why. Sad part is my wife/ kids are so used to it that they don't even react. P.S. Nick, could you email me please... either your email has changed or you've blocked me. I'm getting paranoid. {:I

Alan, I emailed both you and Michelle last week with our new email addresses - give us a call if you never received it.

Ha ha! I'm going to condescendingly assume that this post is a secret cry from your inner Twitter! ;-)

Holy crap that is awesome! I love belching; as a result my daughter, by the time she was nine, could belch like a frat boy. My wife hates it, but every time I hear my little girl roar one of those belches that rattles the furniture, I laugh out loud.

Tell your wife you love her, belching.
It drives women nuts.
