No shitting around the block–here we go: I’m curious as to why whenever I have traveler’s diarrhea, there is a strong petroleum odor. This is entirely different than whenever I’m sick with a flu or whatnot–it seems invariably linked to the confusion of road travels and the shift in eating habits.
You know how odors are linked to the highest memory recall of all the senses? Well, now that scent is invariably linked to my trip to Budapest. Makes me think of how those Hungarian sausages ripped holes in my intestines…feh!
So…anyone know why? What are my innards producing so much of, anyway?
Oh, and FWIW, I “unload” about every 1-2 days. Worst case of constipation: 5 days, and I was si-i-ick. So there you go, stolich!
