What a way to go

So, Buffy is working on death certificates for people that died over the weekend and got one with diarrhea listed as a cause of death. I was certain that the handwriting must just be difficult to read, as who has ever heard of that killing a person? Turns out that it was not the handwriting that was wrong. Diarrhea really is the cause of death. So, that's something new.

On another note: I had a bummer weekend. I saw J at church on Sunday and felt awkward. She looked great, and we talked a little. I was on my best behavior so as not to let her know how hurt and angry I am, that wouldn't be helpful for her right now. Anyway, that's it for now.

Appropriate title for a C.O.D. post. Just thinking about it makes my sphincter quiver.
Dunno what to say about the other thing except to remind you that the world will keep on spinning and we won't fall off. We are here whenever you need to vent.

Wow... that's got to be some serious diarrhea. Massive dehydration, eh? What, they couldn't chug a few bottles of Gatorade while on the toilet?

Diarrhea is actually the leading cause of death in the world- due to poor hydration in under-privileged countries and the wide spread disease giardia. If you don't stay hydrated, it can be super deadly, more than anyone would comprehend in the US.
