A question: why is it more acceptable to talk about babies’ bowel movements than adults’?
When I read the blogs of people with kids, I am genuinely interested in hearing about the inputs and outputs of their children. Maybe not everybody enjoys that kind of reading, but I do. It doesn’t offend me in the slightest. Other things that don’t offend me: breastfeeding in public, South Park, and the comedic stylings of Sarah Silverman.
But man, you write one descriptive paragraph about the results of a day that included high fiber cereal and whole wheat pasta, and nobody wants to hear about it.
Some of you may know that I’m writing a book. I warn you: the very first chapter includes an explosive bowel scene. It’s not graphic or anything, and I think it’s integral to the plot, but it seemed polite to let you know.
(Seriously, it’s comedy gold.)
