smelly air quotes

Bedtime stall action, take 412.

Caroline: [from the hall] Mama, can I talk to you?

Mama: Caroline, you need to be in bed. What's the problem?

Caroline: I think I really have a stomach ache. A bad one.

Mama: What makes you think you have a stomach ache?

Caroline: [very gravely] Well, it's what they call "gas."*

*with finger quotes
