Eighty-word challenge

This Happened at a Baby Shower

by Tom Horonzy

I saw a baby on the floor. The little child was but two feet tall. Even that is my best guess, for she had fallen flat on her chin, likely when her knees gave in as she began to crawl. The reason why? I do surmise it was her effort to move too fast, causing the infant to blow a gasket. Anyone could tell because of the smell from her rear end that she hied to go while leaking gas.
