I haven’t pooped in a week. I live and eat with a Ukrainian family, so I know it’s going in but it WILL NOT COME OUT. This has been a regular (or irregular, as it were) problem for so long that I’m actually considering self medicating with the tap water.

Principal found out that I treat my water before I drink it. "You can drink the water at school. Our water is pure as a mountain spring." I drank a whole glass of pure mountain water. 30 min later, I filled my pants with diarrhea within sight of my house.

I had a horrible case of vomirrhea all night. On my 8th trip out of the bathroom to go back inside my bedroom and wait for imminent death I came across a snake on my door. I deliriously killed it without fear by closing the door on its skull.
