I was going to tell you a poop joke but, it’s really crappy.
If you don’t like talking about poop. You may not like this post. It’s nothing graphic but, it’s about pooping issues.
Yesterday, I was in the middle of a nap when I was woken up by the most gut wrenching cramp. “Damn.” When I get woken up like that, I know what to expect next. I rolled out of bed and walked to the bathroom hunched over. It felt like the cramps were reaching into my soul. I sat on the toilet and just sat…. It felt like I needed to poop.
