A Gross Mystery!

Let’s say that you have to poop. But you can’t! Maybe you’re on the school bus or in one of those pesky classes that you are forced to go to.

So you hold it!

But of course, you’ve made plans to TAKE  a poop. Maybe you’re going to wait until you get home. Or maybe you’re going to use the school’s restroom. 

Either way, have you ever noticed that as you walk (or run!) to the toilet, the urge to poop gets stronger and stronger?

But the poop is inside of your butt. How does it know that you’re getting closer to a toilet? It’s not like it has eyes or anything.

Oh well. I guess it’s just a gross mystery!

  1. Perhaps it's generally accepted that like the brain, your gastrointestinal tract tends to have a mind of its own. Of course, add expectations of making it into the can in time, as well as other stimuli in regards to getting it done in time, would definitely heighten the need to get it done, and fast!

  2. You know what...this makes sense!


No bad words, thanks!
