Earlier this week I had a nasty bug that caused some pretty disgusting symptoms. One was a massive headache that lasted a few days. The other, and I can’t believe I’m typing this but here goes: The other was some gut-wrenchingly painful stomach cramps and explosive gas and diarrhea.
Picture this: I am sitting in a meeting with some parents, teachers, administrators, and a student. My stomach starts rumbling and growling so loudly that the other people in the room must be wondering if there is an impending thunderstorm or why there is a train running through the halls. I start shaking and sweating profusely as I attempt to hold in what I know cannot be held in many more minutes longer. And THEN, the room starts getting darker and darker, a sure sign that I am about to pass out.
