Defecate: (v) to void excrement from the bowels
It is rather embarrassing how often I am proud over defecating.
I think some explanation is in order.
But then again, what could be more pleasant than being relieved?
Having something growly and bouncy in your bowels that suddenly decides to evacuate, leaving behind a minimal amount of clean-up work, is certainly divinely inspired.
And even if the cleanup work is a bit excessive, it is not beyond the pale, and is well worth the effort.
There are times when the actual process is a bit grim, if not gruesome.
But still, all in all, the memory left behind is kind and filled with such contentment that you could never say there was any lasting dissatisfaction.
No, I will tell you that defecating rarely has to apologize. There are those rare occasions when it hangs around too long, becoming overwrought with diarrhea, when its presence might be considered annoying.
But damn, if that whole procedure doesn’t have its charm.
So here’s to defecation.
The process that grants us evidence of both its need and its beauty.
