    I have to apologize but I have been obsessing over Eileen’s poop. I know it is strange and more than a little weird, but I just can’t understand how a pill, designed, manufactured and tested for time release, could make it all the way through Eileen’s digestive system in tack. Eileen being an athlete and all may have conditioned her body to the point where she could be a world champion pill pooper.
    And then there was the delivery. What are the odds that the pill would end on top of the pile? It’s too great to compute. Nope it had to be skill, the icing on the cake so to speak. I’ll bet if it had been a log, it would have been dead center and right on top. In competition, just like diving or gymnastics, they’d have to give that kind of a move a very special name and a commentator reporting the competition for millions of viewers would probably call it like this:
    “Eileen has only been on the stool for five minutes and…Yes! she is reaching for the roll signally a successful drop. With that level of speed it has to be a skill passed down from her mother, we understand her father can take half a day to reach this point in the action.
    The judges are rushing in as Eileen takes a quick peek and throws her hands up in the air in a victorious pumping action. The judges peering over the edge of the bowl seem to agree. Can we get a close up of the dump? Oh, goodness she not only passed the pill INTACT she’s executed a perfect BUMP ON A LOG! The judges will have to score this one very high! Now from our remote reverse action we can show you a slow motion of the actual drop.”
    Ups, gotta go! bill

  2. I goofed! I counted the statements wrong. I meant to say lies are: 7, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17.
