Short Story Video: Transcript
Everyone has embarrassing moments in his life. How a person handles those moments tells volumes about that individual.
One evening my father took several members of my family to a nice steak house. Everyone dressed accordingly, and we were anticipating a great steak dinner.
The steaks were delicious. While we waited for dessert, my mother excused herself and went to the ladies room. A few minutes later she returned to the table.
As she was being seated, she released a “thunder burp.” Not the kind of burp that can be heard at the next table, but the kind that can be heard three blocks away over the roar of a busy metropolitan street…it was a real window shaker.
Everyone in the restaurant was stunned…including my mother. Everyone stared at Mom. A lesser person would have crumbled under the pressure, but this woman had met all the crises of raising twelve children and survived.
She looked at the other patrons and said, “I’m sorry, but it was the best I could do.”
She sat down and ate her dessert as though nothing happened. A few people looked disgusted, but most chuckled and returned to their dinners.
After the meal, one of my siblings asked, “How could you eat knowing everyone was starring at you?”
“After the things you kids have put me through that burp was a breeze,” Mom replied.
“No,” Dad said. “It was more like a tornado.”
