As a registered nurse of many, many years I can tell you with professional authority that people people love to talk about their bowel movements. My professional responsibility was to inquire if a patient had a bowel movement. The answer I sought was simple YES or NO. But did it ever stop there? No – I’ve been treated to more specific details about individuals that you can imagine, sometimes I got historical recounting covering weeks or months. For this reason, I forbid any of my family members or close friends to even broach the subject with me, no matter what their health issues are. I have heard enough.
But hey – is there any more personal or highly anticipated event in a person’s life? NO! Why not take advantage of it? After all, to paraphrase a famous man – never let a good human waste product go to waste.
