There was a time when nobody went on TV and talked about what was happening deep inside our colons. Do you remember that time? It was called the 90s.
It was also called the 80s, 70s, 60s, 50s, 40s….well, you name it.
I’m not saying it was a better time. In fact, I think it’s pretty cool that we talk about our bowels on TV now. It makes diseases of the bowel feel less strange and embarrassing. It raises awareness and educates people. It promotes energetic conversation rather than awkward silence.
