    common 

    not everyone is as luck as i. i understand that.

    when i was a kid i was obsessed with toilets. and calling my mom.

    age 10 or so id call my mom at work and flush the toilet and hang up.

    id see a pepto bismol commercial that would say “for symptoms of common diahrea, use pepto bismol”

    so id call diahrea “common”.

    as in, hey ma i think i have common.

    because i rarely had a balanced meal in college often id carry some pepto in my car.

    for the last 4-5 days the pathway through me was swift and clear. nothing stayed in.

    was i stressed out about anything? not really: been writing for the Ticket which has been on fire, ive gotten to see the truest a lot.

    i was eating properly. but still, 5-6 times a day during work i had to run to the nearest – i stress that word – nearest facility.

    i started drinking chocolate milk, eating potatoes, anything weird to see if it would appease the beast.

    finally i texted my mom “have had common for 5 days”

    she texted me back “call me, asap”.

    she suggested Imodium, which worked so fast it was amazing. like it sealed a hole somewhere.

    i wish i was a race car driver so i could let them sponsor me for $1 just so i could celebrate their name.

    somethings still gurgling down there a day later, but im thinking drinkin might help that problem.

    i let you know.
