Editor’s Note: Bring Your Own is a nomadic storytelling series that takes place in living rooms, backyards and other intimate spaces within the community. Each month, seven storytellers have 7 minutes to respond to a theme. BYO airs on “All Things New Orleans” and is a biweekly podcast on WWNO.org.
This story was told at Bring Your Own, a live storytelling event and podcast based out of New Orleans, Louisiana. The theme of the evening, February 26th, 2015, was “Can of Worms”, and here, Carli Raben talks a different kind of passing gas…a kind that finally gained her some respect.
