apricots made my bottom explode

hello!

i have an embarrassing confession and seeing as this is all a bit anonymous on here i feel like i can confess to you all

to put it bluntly i suffer from constipation. a friend of mine at xmas said to eat dried apricots. so i got a little tub of them from this health food place and ate the lot

well after about half an hour all hell was trying breaking loose in my bowels. i was in a really long and boring meeting that was dragging past 6pm, and all i could do to keep control was to cross my legs, tense my bottom cheeks and pray nothing forced its way out

when i got a 'comfort break' i  dashed to the loo and something like hiroshima exploded down the u-bend, and my poor stomach was groaning all weekend (i just about made it home without pebbledashing my knickers) and thank the lord no-one else was in the next cubicle... i think

on the plus side, my motion (scattered as it was) was nice and dark - which i hear is a good thing

but not so sure the whole botty bomb thing was quite right

is it just me?

Re: apricots made my bottom explode

I once drank a half litre of Muller Strawberry yogurt which had much the same effect apart from;

a) I was in the garden

b) I didn't run fast enough

This was a long time ago though.

I had a shocking experience years ago after eating a huge lentil salad the night before and then going down Lewisham market in the morning.

No disaster, but I had to waddle home like a penguin!!  oops

Re: apricots made my bottom explode

A watermelon and lime freeze does it for me...like no other...icky but it really is a colon cleanser.

Just blend up fresh watermelon,ice cubes,fresh lime juice and a bit of honey,then sip it,lie back and watch the fireworks...exploding downward of course... puke
