Well I feel stupid....

****************Warning: If you get grossed out by bathroom talk DO NOT READ***************

Because I have been juicing and therefore drinking so many beets, my pee has been sort of a pinkish/peach  color and my poop has been red, bright red.  I found it very alarming, especially because I got a bleeding ulcer while planning my wedding and had to have a colonoscopy shortly after we were married. The ulcer hasn't bothered me very much since then. So I thought to myself, beets are BRIGHT pink/purple, NOT red. So I called the doc and they wanted to see me ASAP.
TMI ALERT: I went in knowing what she would have to do to check for blood in my poop, she had to stick her finger up "there".  She was sure it was going to be positive, I told her about the beets and she said the same thing, it would be pink, not red. Nope it was negative for blood. I'm not complaining about that, I'm complaining that I should of known better and just waited until beets were out of my system, rather than pay $25 for a doctor to stick her finger up my @$$.

Sorry. I'm not laughing at you. More like I'm laughing with you.


I am laughing at you. LOL

But only because I can identify!

About 6 months after we had 'the talk' in health class about becoming a woman, and about 6 months before I actually entered puberty in full force, I was sort of addicted to carrots. And, well, let's just say I thought I'd entered womanhood.

And so I laugh with you, at you, and at myself. You will laugh as well. Someday. :D

Oh gosh...I am not laughing AT you...just WITH you! After a dinner which included asparagus a few months back, my very concerned 10 year old came to me with a serious worry over her urine smelling weird.

I eat a lot of beets, especially in the summer, from our garden. I got freaked out in the bathroom in the beginning, until I realized what was happening. Too funny!
