Why would I eat there?

So, driving in the car with Brayden yesterday, her voice piped up from the back seat, and the following conversation took place:

Brayden: Mom, what's I.B.S. ??

Me: Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Brayden: What's that?

Me: Well, I'm pretty sure it's when your stomach cramps, and you poop a lot. Or can't poop at all.

Brayden: That's disgusting.

Me: People can't really help it, it's just something that happens.

Brayden: No, I mean that's disgusting that a restaurant would do that.

Me: Huh? What?

Brayden: That restaurant back there, ::insert name of favorite local BBQ joint:: has on their sign "Best IBS in town". Why would we want to eat there if it's going to make us sick?

And you know, it took me just a minute to figure it out.

Me: RIBS, Brayden, best RIBS in town. The "r" is missing.

Where did the links to the blogs you read go? There were some great blogs there and I didn't bookmark any of them. Thanks

Ha! Not that IBS is funny. Or pooping in general. Or not pooping. Or excessive pooping. Not funny. Ha!

(I don't know what I'm saying).
