Even the earliest physicians supported inspecting your a.m. productions


Rise early...every day to see what has gone down from the anus.
If it has gone down like black lumps you shall say his belly is
in a bad state, blistered.
--Ancient Egyptian medical text, circa 2,000 BC

While we're on the subject, I also find it impossible to not look at the contents of a used tissue. Somewhat less enlightening, but who can help it?

But your tissue, right:)

I'm sure Dr. S agrees with me that more than once someone has brought in (a single instance of) THEIR tissue for my inspection. This sackful, however, was a first. Hopefully a last.
