So, I asked this gross question in a small group, and for the most part people were like, um, no, not as such.
I mean, nobody was offended or horrified or even bothered. It's a workout group run by my dear friend Wendy. So I knew it was a safe space to ask such a question. And in fact, there were hilarious responses and anecdotes.
But nobody, until one friend at like 11pm, said yes! Yes, I know exactly what you're talking about!
And here I should probably include a scatology warning. There. You've been warned.
I said: OK, this is super gross but do you ever take such a huge poop that you
are dying to show it to someone (but know better than to do so)?
Because, you guys! Don't you?
I remember before I had a baby and I was like, something that enormous is never, no way in hell, going to come out of my little body.
And then it did!
And every once in a while, I'm just stunned. Absolutely astounded. So much so that I want someone else to be all, "Whoa! I can't believe it either!"
It's not exactly that I think I'd impress anyone with my poop...but something like that.
So one of my friends in the group asked if I'd taken a picture. And I was about to feign shock and be all, "No! Of course not!"
But. Then I was like, am I really going to lie? Because I mean, the answer was no...Not this time.
Because the truth is that like three or four years ago, when I found myself in this same astounded position, I did take a picture. Surely Nick would want to see this giant! And share in my horror/amazement!
Turns out he didn't. He really really didn't.
So now I know better. But the urge to share? Still there.
