While on the elliptical machine I decided to read a short story called ” An Unexpected Twist.” hysterical. It’s a man’s tale of going through a series of colon operations. I burst out laughing at the gym when he speaks about his Ileostomy. This is when they hang part of your small intestine out of your body and attach it to a bag. Kindly referred to by the author as ” bag of shit” . The part I found so amusing is that a nurse came to him with a magazine called The Phoenix which is the GQ of people living life with their bags of shit. Everyone bbqing, laughing, picnicking. A whole happy community walking around with shit hanging out of their bodies. I know it’s gross but this story made my day. Nothing like the medicinal effects of laughter.
