I kid you not, someone knitted a complete digestive tract.  Not sure if it's life size or not, but if you ever need your own model to look at, you can make it yourself with yarn!

Well now, isn't that just so creative? LOL!!!

What next? I would like to take up quilting one of these days (with sewing machine, not by hand) but that craft project is a real stretch. No pun intended.....he he

So, what is this person going to do with it now? Donate it to a Gastro doc so he can display it in his office?

- Colostomy reversal, June 1999
- Left with IBS/D symptoms, multiple bm's every day

All in all I do okay, I just use the bathroom A LOT! But I survived and beat cancer!

Wait... there's more. Why not some toilet paper?

Only I think IBSers should have smiling toilet paper, to at least give them something happy to look at in the bathroom.

Someone on the comments section down below said she knits on the toilet. I hadn't thought about that! Might be just the thing to do next colonoscopy prep.

Ok I don't usually post here but I just had to say hi. I LOVE that digestive tract. I wish I had one!!! I teach fifth grade and I could use that. Does anyone want to volunteer to knit me that???

Seriously,........this is cool stuff. You all have way too much fun here.

I think my Gastro doctor would find this craft hilarious and buy one for her office. Even if just for her personal office (where she meets patients before they disrobe).

I find the smiley TP suggestion funny too. Anything to take our minds off what's really going on.

My dream if we ever build again is to have 10 toilets in our house, all over the place, two in the master bath so hubby could have his own, one in the laundry area too, one even next to the furnace I joke (as many Mid-western homes had that were built back in the 50s). And finally, two plumbing/waste lines to the curb. Two - in case one backed up!

Of course this will never happen.......he he

But if we ever win the lotto, my next house is going to have so many toilets! LOL

All I can say is, don't get me going...wait...on second tought, "going" is what I have been trying to do...hehe

I'm considering investing in crossword puzzle companys, if my bathroom and this forum is any indication I would stand to make some good money. Or, hey, taking the smiley-face Tpaper another step, how about crossword puzzle or word-find toilet paper? $$ maybe make enough to install a couple more toilets in the house!

Thanks guys for the chuckle, every day is a good day to laugh : - )

<<crossword puzzle or word-find toilet paper? >>

Already exists. Someone got some crossword toilet paper for my grandfather and grandmother years ago as a laugh.

But have you seen the price of suduko puzzles at the grocery store? That's what you need to be printing. Sudoku is where it's AT. Lol.

Well here's something goofy I'll share. I guess I should have been an architect or gone into drafting. My dad was in construction when I was growing up, he always had a new home's blueprints on the kitchen table. He would explain what each room was. So I took to drawing my own floorplans as a child (my gosh this sounds so nerdy!).......my dad even went further and built me my own drafting board, T square and I received templates for xmas ones year, for various shapes to create my rooms.

No I don't drag this drafting table in the bathroom - LOL. You thought I did huh? LOL It's all actually packed away, has been for decades.

But what this interest created in me is collecting floor plan books. So in each of our bathrooms I often have one - my favorites are the Southern Living floorplans. So I play the what-if game - if we win the lotto, I'd build this house! At times decorating magazines too (another favorite is Cottage Living).

Lately I've been imagining what a small brand new green house would be like. Geo-thermal heating, etc.

All of this crazy and wacky interest of mine takes my mind off my GI troubles! I even draw floor plans still but usually pitch them in a day.

People ask me all the time - oh are you building a new house again? LOL I laugh and say oh no, just an interest of mine.......

Marsky, you sound like my mother. She loves houses and has bene drawing floor plans since she was a kid. She even went back to school to get her AA degree in AutoCAD drafting, but she hasn't been able to make a job of it because she's not willing to move to a big city, where people would need house plans all the time. She lives in a rural little county and so she only gets occasional work. And, of course, no one is building or remodeling right now. But yeah, I grew up with house plan books in the bathroom and all over the rest of the house, LOL.
