Today, a bear broke into my garage and I started juicing. One of those things made me shit myself.


As I’ve mentioned before, we are regularly visited by wildlife at our home.  Deer, bear, wild turkeys, otters, and gators use our backyard as a cut-through to the State Park behind us.  It’s only problematic on trash day.  We can’t leave out trash out the night before or the bears have a block party, so we get up super early and tote the trash to the curb, then climb back in bed.

Today, as sometimes happens, the bears were waiting.  In the hour between taking the trash out and leaving the house, they went through the trash, entered my garage, tried to open the garage fridge and left with Number One’s lunch box (which we recovered from under the trampoline this afternoon).

Maybe they smelled the veggies.  Have you ever juiced?  I have not.  But I got a craving the other night for juice and since I have no impulse control, went immediately online and ordered a juicer.

It arrived yesterday.  Last night I made a big glass of juice.  Carrots, celery, kale, apples and ginger.  It was delicious AND it made me poop so I was pretty happy.   It was so yummy, that this morning, after taking out the trash so the bears could have a healthy breakfast of fruit and vegetable pulp, I made another batch of juice.  I thought Number One would like it  so I made a big batch.  3 apples, 4 celery stalks, 4 carrots, 2 bunches of grapes, several cups of kale and spinach, and a little ginger.  It made a big-gulp sized cup of yummy deliciousness.   I split it in half. Number One declined.  I drank mine.  Then I drank his.  Then I drove the kids to school.  Then I shit myself.

I literally RAN from the PTA office to the nearest bathroom and barely had my pants at my ankles before I starting peeing out of my ass.  For a solid 5 minutes.


Why did no-one ever tell me that juicing gives you the shits?  Or perhaps suggest that you shouldn’t drink 50+ ounces  of fresh juice in a 10 hour period?  I’m not doing the juice diet.. I just wanted some juice…

Now that I’ve shat myself, I have googled “juicing”, “juice diet” ,etc and have yet to find any mention of anal vomiting or ass-quakes.  Not a word about hershey squirts, colon blow, or poop soup.  Nothing! Nada!

So, as a public service to you all, I am here to tell you that ONE of the things below can be very dangerous.  It’s not the bear.



Also, in case you aren’t on my Facebook page, I feel the need to share the comments.  Y’all are pretty funny ;)

Everything that I never knew I wanted.

Why being a bad "parent" makes me a good "mom"

I am BLESSED and I don't care who knows it.

To blog or to Facebook? That is the question....

Why December kicks my ass. Every fracking year.

    I tried the cabbage soup diet. I lost 11 pounds in a week. It was awesome. However, no one told me brown rice was the equivalent to taking multiple laxatives. I ate my big bowl or rice and then took a long ass walk. This is why exercise and dieting is a bad idea.

    You know me and you know I’m doing me 2nd ever juice cleanse/fast. Honestly never in my life have I ever had an experience remotely similar. And I’m hard core. That is crazy!! I’ve had headaches, leg cramps (need tons more water when that happens) but after the 2nd or 3rd day it’s a breeze and sooooo amazingly good for your system. That story is crazy and not funny but yeah…pretty funny. You rock for sharing it.

    Does your poop smell like juice or vodka, because I’ve totally shit vodka before.

    I “almost” want to buy a juicer now. The thought of taking off a few pounds peeing out my ass sounds great. ;)

  7. Elaine says:

  14. Anna says:

    Wow… now that’s an experience! I never heard that drinking juice could do that, but then again, you mention drinking like gallons of it, that could possibly be the cause!

  15. Kirsty says:

    I can only assume you have to live near me. lol I too live near a State Park and see bears all the time on my driveway. I will tell you though several times that bastard had made into my garage, OPENED my garage fridge and stole our leftovers and a freakin 12 pack of diet soda(i guess he figures he will be thirsty after he eats our leftovers.) My daughter opened the door leading from our kitchen to our garage and the way she described it was a big furry ass was walking out of our garage with all of our food and drinks. UGH needless to say I was a tad bit shaking up and sure enough that bastard has come back several times. He looks at us like we are invading his space. Another time my son went outside to find him sitting on our driveway just looking up at the stars and stretching as if he belonged there. I called the bear hotline and all they did was send me papers on what to do if you see a bear. Not one person came to my house nothing.. It was a waste of my breath. email me and I will send you pictures of what he did when he was at my house. lol I love your blog BTW it makes me laugh… Thanks for your hard work i know having a blog is a full-time job. Which is why I don’t have one I just read yours.
    Looking forward to hearing from you,
    Julie D
