*Disclaimer: This content includes poop.
I recently bought a box of Fiber One bars to eat as a snack during summer school, and thanks to all of the additional fiber, I’ve been pooping a lot more than I did before I got the bars (well, clearly). I don’t know about you guys, but when you poop, do you occupy yourself with something to pass the time? Maybe read a magazine? Or a newspaper? I’ve heard that some people read their Bibles! Maybe you do that too? Well for me, I’m usually on my phone, scrolling through Instagram, checking Snapchat, or looking at my news feed on Facebook, but when I don’t have my phone, I find myself making a to-do list for the rest of the day, the week, or sometimes way into the future. Then sometimes, I just think.
Anyway, long story short…I went to the bathroom today, and I didn’t have my phone. I don’t know why, but the only thing that crossed my mind while I was pooping was, “I wonder what people used to do when they pooped back in the day”. Okay yes, I know that’s weird, but I told you guys I would write whatever my brain decided to think about on this blog soooo YOU WERE WARNED. Okay, back to the poop. Honestly though, if you think about it, nowadays we have things to read and phones to look at, but people back in the day didn’t have those things so…what DID they do? Naturally, my initial question led to many other questions like, “Did they think about what they had to do for the rest of the day? Did they count the tiles on the floor? Did they just..sit there? Did they ask themselves weird questions too?” Before I could think about it anymore, I was done, and that was the end of that.
And…welcome to my brain. Now that you’ve had a little glimpse of what goes on in there, let me ask you, “What do YOU do when you poop?” Maybe you’ve never thought about it, maybe you don’t think at all, maybe you have a routine! Who knows. Actually, only you would know, but now you would really know! It may be 2 in the morning, (I should really stop blogging at this hour) and I may say and think some crazy stuff, but hey, toilet thoughts, think about it.
