I can't find the fart

While dining with a small herd of friends last night, Pigtails created a word search puzzle on a scrap of paper as we waited for the mozzarella to bubble on our pizza.  Glancing at her list of words, I covered my face and said aloud, "What have I done?   I've created a little monster who's obsessed with all manner of bodily functions."  Here are the five words in her search:
  • poop
  • toot
  • fart
  • potty
  • her
She laughed as she explained the word "her" was the most silly of the words, since dad is a boy and he'd have to look for a girl word.  

I worked through the search and picked the words off the list, but had difficulty finding the word "fart".  She must have spelled it wrong in the search, there surely was a reason I wasn't finding it.  Close to giving up, I slumped and quietly mumbled "I can't find the fart."  Pigtails grinned as I gave it one last look and finally found it.

I was praying the others at our table were unaware of what was going on at our end, it would have been awkward to try and explain.
