My sister Margaret is a nurse. In fact, all the ladies in my families have been nurses at one time or another (most retired now except for Joan). Nurses like to talk frankly about things. And by god, they really obsess about bowel movements. Know what I mean?
Anyway, one day we were driving somewhere and Joan was telling us about a colleague of hers who had been diagnosed with bowel cancer. He’d had symptoms for ages but not acted on them. Margaret said in frustration and disgust “if more people talked about their poop, there would be a lot less death from this kind of cancer. Why won’t people talk about their poop?!”
Well, Margaret, you will happy to know that I’ve found a great lot of people that revel in talking about poop. In the UK they seem to call it ‘poo’ but, you know, same thing! I wouldn’t be suprised if bowel cancer was rarely seen there.
Anyway, here are a couple of posts that literally had me crying I was laughing so hard. (Apparently I DO have the sense of humour of a ten year old boy!).
First, Toxic Soup’s blog is written by a woman most aptly known as funny thing. She is indeed very funny and here is her poo story.
Next, D-Flat Chime Bar’s blog is written by my dear friend Surly Girl. Her blog is one of my favorite places to visit. Whether its funny, sad, poignant, biting…the writing is always good. In this poo post, she wrote a bit, but it was really her commenters that got rolling with stories. Very funny. Go see.
Lastly, I know a very talented writer in the US, who is, like me, reluctant to blog about poo. But she did it, and did a fine job too. The Whinger, from Whinging it, is a fabulous writer and you should go read her at every opportunity! Here is her poo story.
Go on now. Have a good laugh. Its good for your health.
