How many times do you poop a day

  1. 0
    Funny story. When I was taking my first pre-nursing courses, assessment to be precise... I was practicing with a fellow student and taking a health history. When I got to the bowel movement section, she stated she typically went once/day. I was rather sarcastic, and somewhat of a trouble-maker , so I said, "actually, you should go more than twice per day." She reacted by stating, "that's not true, I'm going to go ask the instructor." Well the instructor started talking in general about constipation views differing between allopathic (medical) doctors and naturopaths (yes this is a traditional nursing program).

    Later that day, I spoke to an older lady friend of mine and told her I wanted to talk to a friend of mine who lives in Seattle. He is a vegan and a health nut. The next night, my phone rang. I answered and upon hearing his voice stated, "I was just talking about you...how many times do you poop a day?" He laughed and said once or twice. I stated, "I knew it...and then I explained what had happened in school." Then I sat on my bed and proceeded to talk about myself for 15 minutes...all about my grades, and how I was doing, etc. Me me me. Finally, I told him I was considering quiting my massage position at a spa I was working for. That's when he said, "I have been meaning to talk to you about that...how does that work?" And I responded with, "how does what work?" "Massage...how much does it cost, etc."

    At that point, I started panicing from my head down my body. My friend in
    Seattle gets professional therapeutic massages all of the time...why would he be asking me questions. I also realized that suddenly, his voice sounded different. So I asked, "who is this?"

    It turned out to be my son's boyscout leader (I had talked with him twice). I just rolled on the floor laughing for 20 minutes, with my children looking at me like I was crazy. I had asked him why he let me go on and on...he stated "I thought you just wanted to talk!"

    I had a funny story to share for a while. I explained the situation to him and his wife...the crazy things that I do.

    BWAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

    Reminds me of when my husband and I were newlyweds..........I called him at work to ask him about something I couldn't wait till the end of the day to find out, and of course got the secretary, who said she'd page him for me over the intercom.

    Well, when a man answered the phone saying "This is Bill", I went "Hello, you big handsome man" in my best come-hither voice, and forgetting momentarily what I'd called about, I launched into a lengthy description of all the wonderful things I had planned for him later that evening. I must have gone on for five minutes. Finally, after I was done outlining the festivities in triple-X-rated detail, the voice on the other end said, "What you've told me is VERY interesting, and I'd be happy to take you up on it.......but your husband might have something to say about that. Here he is", and MY Bill came on the line :imbar :imbar :imbar

    He and I both got teased about that one for the entire two years he worked for that company..........well darn it, the other Bill sounded just like my dh on the phone, but I was sooooooo embarrassed!!! :uhoh21:

    Okay, now that's embarassing!

    BTW, we were taught that normal varies from person to person; the normal range is anywhere between once every three days to three times per day, but for a person at one end of the frequency spectrum to move to the other end (so to speak!) is something to note.

    On a more serious but equally embarrassing note are the times I've said and been told 'I love you' accidentally by and/or to the ex.

    Of course, most relationships don't fail for lack of love but lack of faith and mine was no exception to that rule.

    But still, those things are supposed to end or at least not be said.

    But it's hard after years of saying it to suddenly not add it on at the end of a conversation.

    But at least it's not as embarrasing as asking a stranger how many times they poop a day!

    ~faith,
    Timothy.

    After that incident, I finally came to the conclusion that every once in a while, I do something really stupid. I was grateful that I was able to step back and laugh at my self. I still get a chuckle out of this situation, but after all, pooping is a natural part of life! We certainly have a special nonverbal kind of communication when we see each other. It's a type of silent laughter. But, he and his wife were friendly about it. He actually told me he had gone out for a few beers with some friends before our conversation! What can I do? I can only continue to do the best I can...and laugh at myself.

    Breastfeeding babies often poop after eating! I actually do believe people should go at least once a day, but more often is really good. But, as I said before, I was being silly with my fellow student! I guess my feelings come from my Seattle granola wanna be days...quite a few years ago!
