Me: "Oh my goodness, Steve did you fart or was that Joey?" (The dog)
Steve: Blank stare
Me: "Joey get out of here. You stink."
A few minutes later...
Steve: "Believe it or not I am not afraid to tell you if I fart."
Me: "I guess I just assumed you wouldn't announce it to all of us if you did."
Steve: "The only reason I refrain from farting around you is to keep from being talked about on your blog."
Me: "Thank you. I'll be sure to write about your fear of me blogging about your farts."
Steve: Blank Stare
