The Curious Incident of the Poo in the Daytime

Normally, I work at a crazy county hospital where there seems to be no limit to the strange things I see, both in and out of the operating room (and in and out of the bathrooms for that matter).

But since last July, I have been (and will be until July 2008) working in a comprehensive cancer center, with adults (no pets, no children, no mythical creatures with uncontrollable diarrhea), who are (so I thought) pottie trained. So, you’ll understand my confusion (and my intrigue) when I went to use the bathroom today (for a numero uno, if you must know) and found a roughly quarter-cup sized pile of poo in the center of the blue tiled floor. It was so neatly placed there, it seemed deliberate…almost like someone came by with a soft-serve poo machine and squeezed out a little dollup right there. The only thing missing was a garnish…like a sprig of mint or a drizzle of raspberry syrup or something.

Strange. Curious. Provocative.

ah...disgusting! I can never look at soft serve in the same way.

Have you asked Mr Poopie?

mist1 said...

Yeah...um, I've been meaning to apologize for that.

Sorry.

sharon - Perhaps by Vincent VanPoo??

joan - This too shall pass. Trust me...the nightmares last about two nights, and then you'll find yourself with a strange and undeniable hankering for soft serve icecream. Call me, I'll go with you.

waspgoddess - No. We pottie trained him way back in high school.

mist1 - Appology accepted. (As long as you pay for the soft serve icecream that Joan and I are craving.)

I think you may find the culprit is someone called 'Ed'... ;-)

edvard - AHA! I thought I detected the subtle hint of cigarette smoke in the bathroom! (Though it was difficult to pick up over the Eau D'PooPoo, my nose cannot be fooled!)

edvard moonke said...

in the book to which you refer, the dog murderer is called 'Ed'!

La Cubana Gringa said...

edvard - LOL! Right you are! I love that my own joke was lost on me! Oh jeez...

Mr. Poopie said...

waspgoddess:

I'm not referred to as Mr. Poopie in that context. It's more like the I'm grumpy, moody, bad-tempered, stab you at will kind.

Besides, I wouldn't have forgotten the garnish!

I would find that strange for sure, but not really feel any curiosity, and certainly not find it provocative.

jay - You are probably not alone in your sentiments. Some might say I am "easily amused."
