Further bulletins as events warrant...
"What kind of fart was it? Wet or dry? Resonant or squeaky? Did it roll like thunder? Per the George Carlin fart taxonomy, was it a fizz, a fazz, a fizz-fazz, a ripshit, a tear-ass, a snorter, or one that goes 'phewww?' How would you rate its pungency and the smell's persistence? The density of the cloud? Details, boy!"

Maybe I said it before, but they sure lucked out to be making the move when the kids were moving into middle and high school, respectively. Both are times when new groups have to form and many students get a chance to reinvent themselves. Everyone is in a new school, and old cliques are diluted. A kid from out of town and a kid from a different school look equally out of place, and there are a lot of the latter. They should fit right in, and I wish them well in the transition.
