Vent. It's a slit in a garment, usually in the lower edge of the back of a coat, to allow easier movement.

Or maybe it's an opening through which gases, especially air, can pass. Or the opening of a volcano from which lava flows. In other words, a conduit and/or orifice through which volcanic materials (lava, gas, and water vapor) reach the earth's surface, with that distinctive, characteristic sound.

Here are a couple further thoughts to shove you along...

(1) If the vent in your jacket is emitting lava, then you've overheated.

(2) I let it out at the vent, or it let me out, depending on the point of view. Anyway, it fits better now and I don't feel bloated any more.

Take your pick, based on how you feel today, and what you've eaten lately.


Have anything worth adding? Then try
Me? Recently got blown off. (The usual.)
