Haha, I always chuckle when I eat a bunch of Red Vines and have bright red output. The first time it happened I at first I thought I was bleeding, but realized pretty quickly it was the red licorice.
I was always preoccupied with my food and how it would digest as well as the consistency of my BM's since I had UC - it's hilarious how excited one can get over a formed stool, LOL.
But now I do sort of picture it going through my digestive system, and I am much more interested in the color
of my output... like how applesauce looks *exactly* the same coming out as it did going in - even the specks of cinnamon. Or one time what came out looked so bizarre I could not for the life of me figure out what it was from.
I wonder if and how that fascination will change after my take-down.
