1) I'm lactose intolerant and have a problem digesting certain high-fat foods, sugars-like HFCS-and proteins-like those in red meat. 2) I have IBS. IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME! So don't irritate me with your questions! 3) I have a functional bowel disorder I don't wish to discuss.
ROFL. I really like your second "explanation". I'll have to try that one next time someone asks.
