Medela (me-de’-la): When you can’t deny or defend friends’ faults and seek to heal them with good words.

I know it’s not entirely your fault. You can’t help your excessive farting. Maybe if you became a vegetarian they wouldn’t smell so horrific? I read somewhere that there’s a pill you can take that makes your farts smell like lavender. I’m going to Google it & we’ll see if we can use it to overcome your case of Satan’s Wind. In the meantime, please don’t stand near me. Nothing personal.
