Whoa, way too much information

A few months ago, the family and I went to Costco for an evening of samples and groceries in mass quantities. While there, I decided to have a sample of tortilla chips. Much as I'd like to, I can't undo that decision.

The girl doing the demos was pretty obviously of the "special needs" set. Really nice girl, and very chatty, so I started visiting with her. Within moments, she starts telling me about how most of her colon is missing, and the bowel trouble she has as a result. Wow. Normally, I love lots of intimate details, but she managed to push beyond even my limits. Trust me when I say it takes some doing for that to happen. She managed to do it though.

I bleached my mind as much as possible, and have managed to forget almost all of the details.

Today, I was at the gym, and got talking with a couple ladies who come in on the handicapped bus. They are special needs, but work so hard, and I really admire them for their effort. Well, the one starts telling me about how most of her colon is missing. I look closer, and realize it's tortilla chip girl from Costco. She starts to tell me in excruciating detail why she can't eat more fruits, vegetables, and fiber as has been suggested to her. I cut her off and asked if she worked at Costco. Sure enough, it was her.

Sweet girl, but man oh man! Please, please please don't give strangers such explicit details of your life!

That's absolutely hilarious!! Suppose you might think about that girl's colon every time you see a tortilla chip? LOL!
