Bowel Buddies - and were not taking the sequel to Brokeback Mountian!

Lori asked what a bowel buddy was so as you may well know I can never just answer a question but must give you the TMI version of the Back Story...

I don't poop every day.
I don't poop every other day...
I don't poop every third day...
About the fourth or fifth day after much expulsion of leathal gases, I poop. I may poop again that same day or the next day, but then it is poop drought again.

This gets frustrating, especially when Weigh In is on Wednesday and it is not until Thursday that I usually poop.

I eat lots of fibre and drink lots of water but because of my distate for pooping at work and I think I have trained my body to never poop.

I want to poop. I want to poop every day, so I am trying a new product (to me) that someone told me about called Bowel Buddies - I found mine in the Pharmacy section of the grocery store, but they are online at I paid 12.45 for a two week supply. This is a Canadian Product so of course it is the best... just kidding, ok not really, but lets not go there now! They don't even taste so bad - kind of like a all bran bar.

Here is the nutritional Info on a Bowel Buddy
