Now I’m sure I have a couple of readers who can advise me on this question.
How does one refer to being ill in one’s bowels in polite society?
If I have a headache I can tell people that. If I have a stomach ache I can tell people that. If I have cramp in my leg I can tell people THAT. If I have an infection in my ear I can tell people THAT.
So if my bowels are spasming … how do tell people that without using the B word? Or am I just not supposed to tell them? Am I even living in a polite society!? Humph.
Why my stomach and my bowels must bicker so I do not know. I hope they can kiss and make up with the rest of my body soon. I like it better when they are quiet and peaceful and getting on with their work happily.
