Here's my favorite page in this book I got for Christmas. Who knew "number two" had so many types? Still, when I saw this page, I nodded with recognition at each one. Most days, I produce types 4-6, but types 1-3 make an appearance now and then, usually when I'm on vacation. It's interesting to note that type 1 has spent the most time in your colon, while number 7 (what we refer to around here as "shitting water") has spent the least time there. What you want though is number 4. The perfect turd. It slides out effortlessly and doesn't leave you with that annoying feeling of having left something behind. It has spent just the right amount of time incubating in the colon. I feel smug this morning as I've just finished producing type 4. How about you?
