Once we were invited by someone for dinner. It was a really nice evening and we were just eating when I felt I had some gas. And I know people here like to hold that back but I cannot do that. So I let it go. I know everyone heard it and I just had to start laughing. And then I couldn’t stop anymore! I tried very hard because I know here it is considered as bad manners but I just couldn’t stop! It is so difficult to stop laughing when you are in this mood. And it makes it more funny that here nobody would talk about this.
It was funny and it took me some time to stop laughing. I hope nobody got offended by this, especially as I know that my hosts were serious people who take care of manners. And this is here absolutely no good manners but in India not really seen as bad manners.
Since that evening Ramona says I am even more crazy than her. But you see how much fun I had because of this! And I think this is the most important part. You should not let your manners kill the fun of life! I like this kind of laughter which is loud and how much you try to stop it, it comes more and more. I hope everybody knows this feeling how it is that you just cannot stop laughing! And afterwards you feel really good! Live, laugh and love.
