public kimchi fart

I'm stealing this from myself. It's something I wrote to my brother David about a recent incident.

I was over at Yongpoong Bookstore the other day, standing in the Religion section,
reading a recently-published book by Thich Nhat Hanh when I heard a loud, LONG
fart. I looked up, and some guy standing about ten feet away was browsing some
books, and it was obvious he was the one who'd farted. What made this strange is
that he basically did it out in the open, by the main aisle where all the pedestrian
traffic is. I was off to the side, hidden by bookshelves. My location would have
been better for any potential farts, so I had to admire the guy's brazenness. He
was about twenty feet away from one of the main cash registers. I can only wonder
what the girls working there thought.
