My sweet mother doesn't like chocolate. She says, "It tastes like ex-lax." Was she force-fed ex-lax™ as a child or something? I've never understood her comparison of chocolate and ex-lax™  ::shrug:: 

That's actually fine, though. Her dislike of chocolate left more for us kids.  ::smile::

Thank you Jaime for that cartoon!  It gave me a good chuckle!  Being a chocoholic and having typical "oldies" slow passage of stuff through the internal piping, the cartoon rang a bell.  I have to resort to taking a "Fybogel" powder daily, and if desperate, pinch a spoonful of my wife's  "Lactulose" (she needs it to avoid straining due to a prolapsed bowel problem (resulting from over-straining in giving birth to our daughter, nearly 50 years ago). She has had the "simple op" of having a section of bowel cut away, but it wasn't successful in her casel - and she doesn't want them to try the more "complex op").  I can understand her "reluctance"  because I had a TURPS (prostate resection) op done 30 years ago, which caused a lot of irrepairable "collateral damage".

  When it comes to natural laxatives, I think a generous helping of Prunes soaked in pear juice can do wonders to get things on the move!

This cartoon gave me a chuckle because my wife is all the time hiding her treats so I don’t eat them all!

Well, Dave, we now certainly know all about you and your wife's health issues!  ::prayinghard::

But this reminds me of something -

I watch a lot of YouTube videos on various topics - home decor, makeup and fashion, gardening, crafting, health  - all my usual interests. A couple of weeks ago, I somehow stumbled upon a slew of videos on women having huge families. In years past, Catholic women had large families because of the whole birth control avoidance, etc, but there appears to be a large and growing number of young women who are having extremely large families and it has nothing to do with religion. They just love giving birth and documenting the birth process (in extreme detail) on video for the world to see. Not that there's anything shameful in giving birth, but just because you can do something (show the world your private parts during childbirth) doesn't necessarily mean you should do it. These women are having 9-15 kids. (Like they did in olden days, but our ancestors had no access to birth control and didn't invite the world to watch) As I watched one of the videos, I was wondering - how in this world does that woman's internal organs even stay in her body? Even with corrective surgery - mercy - some things just can't be repaired.
Anyway-
It just seems like a lot of these women are addicted to the attention they get for documenting childbirth. Like women haven't been doing this from the beginning of time?  ::noworries:: Like it's something new? It's just odd how they continue to pop out one baby after another and videotape the most private parts of childbirth to show the world.  ::shrug::

@mommydi - The sad thing about my wife's trouble is that a medico  said about "Reducing(!) the prolapse" she gets in her "bathroom" visits "Just push it back inside!" - without any rederence to the associated messy business after regular swigging of Lactulose,  as if that were an easy matter.  Despite  her problem, my wife is a lot more active than me. She swims front crawl for an hour each day, and cycles everywhere around town.

  It makes me wonder how many other women suffer silently about this problem!  The success rate for the more complex op to rectify the problem is not very impressive, involving cradling the colon in mesh and attaching that to the hip bone, I think!

Definitely an "Uh Oh" mishap!  ::crackup:: As with most bods that are elderly, I have poor balance and recently  some falls (mercifully none serious).  The latest ridiculous event was in the garden, trying to kick something out of the way - lost my balance, falling back against a water butt, sliding down the side of it, grazing my lower leg badly on the edge of a planter pot, - then to to cap it all, knocked over a tin of Autumn Gold" fence preservative and fell on it.  The lid came off and my weight squashed the can so that the seam burst apart, and I ended up lying  in a puddle of "Autumn Gold" - chinos, shirt,  underpants and socks all a wet delicate shade of beige.  My wife  came out to help me get up and help me "disrobe"! Fortunately we have no neighbours overlooking our rear garden to view a "nuddy"/bleeding/shaken wretch go in the back door to be cleaned up by my ever caring wife!

 No swimming or outside "constitutional walkies" (am not going to  expose my thin shanks to public gaze while wearing shorts, so as not to rub clothing against the sore  leg) for a while till the leg heals!  ::frown::
